This is the Daily Mail, so take with a grain of salt, but the video appears to be genuine. Unfortunately, I can't find any corroborating sources.

Basically, the article states that the Islamic Ghosts of the Caliphate is claiming that they hacked computers within the Army, US State Department, and others, and have obtained personal information of employees, including home addresses. They also issue a threat of sending assassins to the homes of those employees. The example of the hacked data they show in the video is so blurred that it is impossible to read any of it or confirm its validity.

It would served their purpose better I would think if they would have posted a couple of real addresses or better yet a curbside pic. Leaves me skeptical as you prob are.
