The private details of thousands of staff and students at the Australian 
Defence Force Academy (ADFA) have been hacked and released online.

The details include the name, rank, birth dates and passwords of up to 
20,000 people.

A member of the infamous Anonymous group, known as Darwinaire, is claiming 
responsibility for the theft.

An online blog for hackers says the attack took place a month ago, but the 
details are still easily accessible online.

Darwinaire said the hack was just for fun.
