Toronto police computers hacked, U.S. Attorney claims; Not so much, Toronto police say

Peter Edwards reports:

Toronto police are denying the allegations in a U.S. court document that says names and addresses of more than 500 confidential police informants were hacked by an online group led by a former U.S. navy nuclear systems administrator.

The tiny American group, known as “Team Digi7al,” successfully attacked Toronto police computers between May 23 and June 1, 2012, according to a document filed this week by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in a Tulsa, Okla., court.

The allegations have not been proven in court.

“No informants were compromised,” Toronto police spokesman Kevin Masterman said Thursday. “They didn’t breach any internal systems.”
