The personal information of 1000 Canadian government officials was stolen as part of the StratFor hack last December.
The data was contained in the Texan intelligence company's client list and contained emails, passwords, credit card data and home addresses, according to a memo issued by Public Safety Canada.
Jeremy Hammond, 27, has pleaded not guilty to the attack. The Chicago resident was arrested in an investigation of the activist groups Anonymous and LulzSec.
He was arrested along with four others after Hector Xavier Monsegur, a LulzSec founder known as Sabu, was arrested and co-opted as an informant to the FBI.
The company has agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit brought by clients whose data was stolen from its list, providing them with free access to its service and an electronic book that it published, along with credit monitoring protection.
