Hackers Invade More Police Websites in Arizona


Hackers defaced Fraternal Order of Police websites in Arizona last night, posting user names, passwords, and other information of hundreds of officers, reports the Arizona Republic. A release by the hackers, plastered across the homepages of the affected websites, claimed they were releasing information on 1,200 officers. It marked the third major release of documents and personal information on Arizona law enforcement officials within the past week.

The group claims to have defaced 10 websites for different FOP chapters within the state, but only some of them remain that way. Others either quickly restored the sites or took them down while they addressed the issue. The group claims to be protesting the controversial Arizona law targeting illegal immigrants. The first hack was done under the banner of LulzSec, but they claimed to have disbanded on Saturday, their 50th day of existence. Since then, a group calling itself AntiSec has taken up the cause, posting what it called a “master list” of everything that has been released so far.
