The names, photos and addresses of 100 U.S. military members posted online by a group calling itself the Islamic State Hacking Division were not stolen from confidential government files, Defense Secretary Ash Carter said Monday.A Pentagon spokesman, Col. Steve Warren, said service members have been reminded to heed normal security precautions, including password protection, in using social media.Warren said that at least one of the individuals on the list is no longer in the military.Warren said it's not clear whether the group that posted the information is actually related to the Islamic State group whose fighters, buildings and military positions in Iraq and Syria have been bombed by U.S. and coalition aircraft.
