- Law enforcement websites hacked in eleven states, information leaked

Earl Glynn of Kansas Watchdog is reportering that on Saturday a group known as “Anonymous”, and related to  “The Anti Security Movement” or “AntiSec,” released a number of documents stolen from 76 law enforcement web sites in 11 states, most hosted or maintained by a single company.

County sheriffs maintained 57 of the hacked sites. Four of the hacked sites were state sheriffs’ associations in Alabama, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri.

Anonymous described this online release:

“A week after we defaced and destroyed the websites of over 70 law enforcement agencies, we are releasing a massive amount of confidential information that is sure to embarass, discredit and incriminate police officers across the US. Over 10GB of information was leaked including hundreds of private email spools, password information, address and social security numbers, credit card numbers, snitch information, training files, and more. We hope that not only will dropping this info demonstrate the inherently corrupt nature of law enforcement using their own words, as well as result in possibly humiliation, firings, and possible charges against several officers, but that it will also disrupt and sabotage their ability to communicate and terrorize communities.”
