French Defense Ministry Website Hacked By Anonymous

Anonymous hackers have penetrated into a web portal of the French Defense Ministry Website and leaked the database online. The motivation of this cyber-attack is to protest against the country's intensive foreign arms trade operations.
A smaller site, the Centre d'Identification des Materiels de la Defense, has published a communique stating that the portal was under maintenance after the incident was published by Anonymous. The database leaked contains sensitive data such as FTP client usernames, website accounts, PHP sessions and information on army suppliers and partners.
Along with these leaks, Anonymous also provided links to press articles regarding France's weapons industry and its lucrative arms trade sector.

Link to leaked database has not been provided for security reasons.
