Mileka Lincoln of HawaiiNewsNow reports:

HPD has confirmed one of their databases containing information about the public has been hacked. Officials say anyone who has ever signed up for an “HPD alert” using their email address or phone number has been exposed. They say this includes more than 3,500 entries listing individual’s full names.

The group that is claiming responsibility appears to be affiliated with an “anti-American” cyber-attack campaign targeting U-S financial and governmental institutions.

The group taking credit for the website breach is “X-Blackerz Inc”.
