'Robin Hood' hackers to donate stolen $1m

Hackers last night claimed to have stolen a raft of emails and credit card data from US-based security think tank Stratfor, promising it was just the start of a week-long Christmas-inspired assault on a long list of targets.
One alleged hacker said the goal was to use the credit data to steal a $1m and give it away as Christmas donations.
Members of the loose-knit hacking movement known as Anonymous posted a link on Twitter to what they said was Stratfor's tightly-guarded, highly confidential client list.
Among the list: The US Army, the US Air Force and the Miami Police Department.
The rest of the list, which Anonymous said was a small slice of its 200 gigabytes worth of plunder, included banks, law enforcement agencies, defense contractors and technology firms such as Apple and Microsoft.
