Arizona Police Hacked for the Third Time
A few days ago, the Arizona Dept of Public Safety was hacked for a second time by the same group and private emails, social networking accounts, photos and other personal information which was claimed from at least a dozen officers were exposed by AntiSec, an operation started by Anonymous and the LulzSec collectively. Today, the Arizona Dept of Public Safety was hacked for the third time by the same group.
Recently, AntiSec hacked into the Arizona Dept of Public Safety and said in an online post that it was going to continue hitting Arizona police. AntiSec was going to continue “dumping booty pirated from a dozen Arizona police officer’s personal email accounts looking specifically for humiliating dirt.”
“This leak has names, addresses, phone numbers, passwords, social security numbers, online dating account info, voicemails, chat logs, and seductive girlfriend pictures belonging to a dozen Arizona police officers. We found more internal police reports, cops forwarding racist chain emails, k9 drug unit cops who use percocet, and a convicted sex offender who was part of FOP Maricopa Lodge Five,” AntiSec said.
This time, AntiSec released a statement broadcasting their Arizona Public Safety security breach for the third time. “We’re defacing eight (Arizona) Fraternal Order of Police websites and releasing a master list of over 1,200 officer’s usernames, passwords and email addresses. Additionally we are leaking hundreds of private (Fraternal Order of Police) documents and several more mail spools belonging to FOP presidents, vice presidents, secretaries, a police chief and the FOP Labor Council executive directory and webmaster whose insecure web development skills was responsible for this whole mess.”
“We’re doing this not only because we are opposed to SB 1070 and the racist Arizona police state, but because we want a world free from police, prisons and politicians altogether.”
A spokesperson for the Arizona Dept of Public Safety was quoted saying, “We’re using this as a learning and training tool for ourselves and the public. We need to be more secure in our dealings with the Internet and our own security on duty and off duty. It’s unfortunate that law enforcement officers have to suffer the wrath of these cyberterrorists.”
Apparently, AntiSec was able to compromise three different email accounts and systems because officers used the same username/password across multiple accounts.Further reading: AntiSec, Security
