A Twitter user affiliated with the hacker activist group Anonymous claimed credit for the attack on Sunday.

The group posted a spreadsheet that allegedly contained the emails, phone numbers, log-in information and encrypted passwords of 4,000 bank employees around the country.

Technology news site ZDNet reported that the information belongs to the St. Louis Fed Emergency Communications System, a service that helps banks communicate with the Fed during disasters.
