20,000 undercover agents data leaked on the dark web by inexperienced hacker

Synopsis

In November of 2016 a 15-year-old hacked the FBI and released detailed information about every undercover FBI officer in the US releasing the information on to the Dark Web.

This hack was described as lacking sophistication and the hacker was considered an amateur which caused concern that such a secure system within the U.S. government was vulnerable to such an attack.
