Hackers launched a second cyber-attack on Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) police, posting the personal information of more than 100 transit officers on the BART Police Officers' Association Website.
The attack was purportedly a response to the transit agency's decision to turn off cellular service in its San Francisco stations to thwart a potential protest.
The information leaked included home and e-mail addresses and passwords. The activist group Anonymous claimed responsibility for the first hacking incident, but not the second.
In cutting wireless service, BART was trying to calm a brewing protest over the police shooting and killing of a homeless man they claim lunged at them with a knife. The planned protest never materialized.
