A hackers group calling itself "Team Poison" has posted what it says are the user names and passwords of more than 100 United Nations staffers' email accounts it pulled from a U.N. computer server.
Many of the accounts posted on pastebin.com website appear to belong to U.N. Development Program staffers.
A telephone call seeking comment from a UNDP spokeswoman in New York was not immediately returned Wednesday evening.

Generally known as "hacktivists," they've targeted a series of government, military and intelligence-related websites across the globe.
