LulzSec Releases Arizona Police Documents
Kevin Poulsen writes on Threat Level:
The hacker group LulzSec published 700 confidential documents Thursday apparently stolen from the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
LulzSec announced its latest conquest on Twitter and released the document cache through BitTorrent. The files are a mix of intelligence bulletins and presentations — including some issued by the FBI, DHS and DEA — private e-mail, training manuals and other material, some it marked “law enforcement sensitive” or “For Official Use Only.”
The group claimed it targeted the Arizona cops because LulzSec is opposed to Arizona’s SB1070, the state’s broad and controversial anti-illegal immigration measure.
Immigrant rights is only the latest in LulzSec’s growing policy platform, which already included support for WikiLeaks and the right to tinker with Sony Play Station consoles, and opposition to the Fox talent show The X-Factor.
