Arizona LE Accounts Hacked by Anti-SB1070 Internet Pirates

June 24, 2011  | 

Internet hackers breached the Arizona Department of Public Safety's online security, leaking sensitive internal documents from law enforcement personnel.

At least eight e-mail accounts of officers were hacked, and leaked documents included gang intelligence briefings, cartel surveillance information, a draft report on racial profiling, and reports on militias and "right-wing extremists."

The hackers also released the names, e-mails, home addresses, cell phone numbers, and other sensitive information about the eight officers. DPS officials say those officers have since received harassing phone calls from around the country.

An underground group called LulzSec claimed responsibility for the attacks, saying it targeted DPS as a protest against SB 1070, Arizona's tough immigration law.
