New Cyber Attack on Arizona Police


online.wsj.com

A computer-hacking group posted Wednesday the personal details of Arizona police officers plundered from private email and social-networking accounts, stepping up a two-month campaign of cyber-break-ins that has targeted government agencies and corporations around the world.

AntiSec, an online movement that includes elements of the Anonymous vigilante group and the Lulz Security hacking collective, posted emails, photos and other personal information it claimed was from at least a dozen office

This is the second time in a week that Arizona State Police have been targeted. It is believed to be Anon. It was done in light of the immigration laws and was named "Chinga La Migra".
I understand getting information for the Public good but this puts peoples lives at stake. American Lives. It is IMO a major problem. I hope these people are caught and incarcerated for these actions.

Really, whats the purpose here? What does this accomplish? Other than being annoying and irritating the police, and whom ever else they hack it does nothing. I just dont see the point in it

My father has spent his entire life in law enforcement and has made a good amount of enemies over the last 46 years, if his home information were to become public it would put my family at risk.

Each one of those officers has family like I do and they are Americans regardless of how law enforcement is seen in their duties. That is the point.

I love it when they use words like " attack" .... or terrorist".

These are words to influence your opinion on the subject, as any goverment institution is considered "good", .. hence anything opposing must automaticaly be considered " bad ".

they becoming talking points for people to repeat to eachother and form a general consesus on.

What it really is, ... is just an annoyance. I dont think any hell bent criminals only obstacle in extracting revenge on an officer is lack of info. Their not waiting at home sitting at their computers going " blast if only anon could hack them " ......

the whole thing is just ludicrous... and in the end. Silly.

What you are missing is the release of that info. It doesnt matter what intent they have, if the info is released you are looking as some potentially serious issues, especially in Arizona.

Whats to say drug cartels or smugeeling cartels out of Mexico dont get ahold of this info. Oh look, here is where he lives, and look, he has a 8 year odl daughters who goes to school here, a wife who works here, and relatives down on their luck who live here.

To assume the people hacking the info and releaseing it are not putting anyone in jeopardy is very naieve. How do we know they arent being paid by a larger group to get this info to throw peope off the track?

Its one thing to say its not a problem and to just shrug it off. Its something else entirely when you do this line of work and have one more thing to worry about.
