Hackers supportive of the Occupy Wall Street protests today released personal information of former Citigroup and Goldman Sachs executive Robert Rubin who was U.S. Treasury Secretary under President Clinton when the banking reform Glass-Steagall Act was repealed.

The CabinCr3w, hackers aligned with the Anonymous group of online activists and the protests, have been releasing personal data of the CEOs of Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase, Goldman Sachs and other bankers. They also released information on a New York police officer accused of unprovoked and excessive use of pepper spray on people at the protests, which began September 17 in New York and have spread globally.

The release of information on the StickyPaste.com Web site features data on Rubin and his family, including addresses, property information, professional activities and organizations, political contributions and court cases.

Rubin, who also was an executive at Goldman, Sachs & Co. and Citigroup, is a founder of The Hamilton Project, an economic think tank, and co-chair of the Council on Foreign Relations. He could not be reached for comment late today.
