A hacker, known by the nickname CyberZeist, claims that he has breached the official website of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for the second time. According to CyberZeist, who posted some of the private information, which he managed to obtain to the open source site Pastebin, the FBI security systems are very “lazy.”

“This leak is totally devoted to the Anonymous Movement,” CyberZeist wrote.

Reportedly, vulnerability in the Plone Content Management System (CMS) of the FBI was exposed by the hacker, who allegedly penetrated the website’s systems without prior warning. According to RT TV-network, the Plone CMS security system is also used by Google and federal agencies such as the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

According to CyberZeist, he managed to obtain information on 155 FBI agents, including such personal details as their names, email addresses, and passwords. The hacker claims that the website was hacked by him only to show vulnerabilities of the FBI, and describes the FBI’s webmaster as having a “very lazy attitude.”

“I was assigned to test out the zero day vulnerability on FBI and Amnesty website,” CyberZeist wrote and added that the security provider of the agency was “too afraid to use it against the FBI website.”

However, it is not the first time, when CyberZeist hacked the FBI website. In 2011, 250 email addresses and passwords were stolen from the website by the hacker, who used a phishing scam in order to feign the appearance of a login portal.

After his last hack, CyberZeist asked his Twitter followers, who should become his next ‘victim’ and be hacked. Around 37.3% of respondents chose banking corporations.
