AntiSec hackers release ‘largest cache yet’ of law enforcement data

Zack Whittaker reports:

Hackers associated with the AntiSec movement — a LulzSec and Anonymous combined effort to breach systems with weak security — have released a 10GB in size cache of data belonging to law enforcement.

Known as ‘Shooting Sherrifs Saturday’, this follows ‘F**k FBI Friday’ in June, where LulzSec published hundreds of hacked usernames, passwords and other details from an FBI contractor.

In the latest cache, over 300 email accounts, personal information of suspects and officers, police training videos, and the contents of an insecure anonymous tip system can be found. Confidential information such as personal details of informants and police officers alike are included in the cache, along with social security numbers and credit card information.
