Turnbull's credit card details leaked

MILLIONAIRE MP Malcolm Turnbull and billionaire businessman David Smorgon have had their credit card details published on the internet by hackers.

The Robin Hood-style attack started on Christmas Eve and was aimed at clients of Stratfor, a security analysis company in Austin, Texas. Hackers obtained thousands of credit card numbers and other personal information from the firm's clients and started making payments to the charities.

The group claimed to have diverted more than $500,000 from private bank accounts of Stratfor customers to charities including the Red Cross, CARE and Save the Children.

Hackers posted a link online to what they said was Stratfor's private client list. The Australian Department of Defence has a contract with Stratfor for a database subscription until November 2012.

A spokesman confirmed Mr Turnbull's private details had been published.
