Austrian Police hacked by Anonymous, 25K+ Personal Data Leaked


www.voiceofgreyhat.com

An Austrian hackers group has published the names and home addresses of 24,938 police officials sparking fears that many could be targeted by criminals. Police say the data published by the Austrian branch of the global hacker collective "Anonymous", known as AnonAustria contained private information for officials ranging from beat officers through to senior commanders.

Anonymous must have been pretty busy hacking police computers worldwide, since it's the second hack (Wallstreet cops) of this sort. Not really sure, why they did it, since there are hardly any complaints about plolice misconduct in Austria... The only people profiting are criminals that now know, where the officers live...

Excessive force is easier to justify when you are playing the part of the vic and much closer at hand when you feel violated. If you are local to this try not to scare the police they might be on edge. And stay safe guys. Sounds like 3rd party ff.

Hm? Austria? Are there really some corrupt cops there? I mean,yes there are corrupt cops everywhere, but how bad is it in Austria? Can someone explain?

Also, if it appears as if the corruption is not that bad, then why target them?

If I remember correctly, about two or three years ago the highest up at the police was involved with brothels and pimps. He got fired. Aside from that there are few scandals. I have no idea why they were targeted...

Why not target US police? They would deserve it more than Austrian police.

Anonymous are anarchists. That's all you need to know about why they would target police anywhere. If these Anons were Austrians then it becomes really obvious.

Anonymous don't 'target' anyone, they are script kiddies, they just trawl the web running scripts till they find a vulnerable site then they make that a target, simply because they can get in simply.

This is why their attacks are so random, and why they have not targeted other police forces, because they don't have the required skill set.

You're right! If they were truly living up to their motto, they would have targeted the world financial centres plus defence and intelligence terminals. Yet we shouldn't rule out and underestimate them. They might have a plan.

Also they would not attack the police, they would try to turn them onside against the banks etc. Afterall why make enemies. Besides it just lookes like a false flag to make sure there is enough anger in the police when they meet a hacker.

Why would you say that?

Anonymous is a very ... odd ... organization. While there are senior members who act as a sort of guiding force - real decision making power as to what Anonymous actually does or does not do is dictated mostly by an individual's resources and how many people they can find who will participate in their "raid."

When you think about Anonymous in light of the 'guild culture' that has developed within many MMOs - it makes perfect sense as to why something so random and... even malicious... could be attributed to a group like Anonymous.

As this sort of stuff continues, Anonymous is going to have to develop some code of conduct standards and methods of internal enforcement.

No explanation as to why it was blamed on anonymous exists in the article. Are all hacker groups automatically "anonymous" to the author? That could very well be the case for all we know. If it was anonymous, then an explanation would have been provided like with every attack they've ever taken responsibility for that I know of, so therefore it more likely was not anonymous.

Whats wrong with knowing who the coppos are?
They know who you are with their police computers. Why should they have all info and we have none?
Forget that.

Yea there must be like 20-30 factions of anonymous out there that know about eachother and have a similar goal.

I doubt a hacker group would try to use anon for their own gain because the real anon could just hack them and they would be done then.


If this is what needs to be done for world wide truth to be available to everyone. ....Universal truth actually....then I'm all for it....

Just as long as they don't post family info...Leave the families out of it anon.

I heard the data was LEAKED not HACKED, which suggests there was an insider.

Can anyone confirm this?
