Three associated with “Anonymous” on trial in Paris for hacking police union

Three hackers who were associated with the Anonymous movement are on trial in Paris, France, after hacking a French police union’s website and dumping the data of 541 police officers online.

The incident took place in January 2012, when the three hackers broke into the website of SGP-FO (Syndicat Général de la Police – Force Ouvrière), France’s biggest police union.
