New York - 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' e-mail accounts it pulled from a UN computer server.

Many of the accounts posted on pastebin.com website appear to belong to UN Development Programme staffers.

A telephone call seeking comment from a UNDP spokesperson in New York was not immediately returned.

Team Poison is among several politically motivated cyber activists or activist groups whose stunts are prompting increased police attention.

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