Arizona Police are Still in the Target of Hackers

A computer-hacking group posted Wednesday personal details of officers allegedly taken from an Arizona police department, stepping up its campaign of attacks against government agencies and officials.
"AntiSec," a hacking campaign that includes elements of the Anonymous vigilante group and the Lulz Security hacking collective, posted emails, photos and other personal information it said was from at least 14 officers at the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
Hackers had targeted the same police department earlier and released training manuals, emails and intelligence documents last week as part of a political protest against a controversial state immigration law.
A spokesman for the Arizona Department of Public Safety declined to comment. Wednesday's release appears to step up the attack, focusing on officers rather than the department more broadly.
"We're not stopping until every prisoner is free," the hackers said in a statement. Earlier, some of the hackers said they had targeted Arizona's police department to protest Arizona's SB1070, a controversial state law that critics say is anti-immigration. A key provision of the law has been frozen because of legal challenges.
The hack comes amid a two-month long rampage of digital break-ins targeting governments and corporations including Sony Corp. (SNE, 6758.TO), the U.S. Senate, AT&T Inc. (T) and other high-profile targets. The attacks had been headed by Lulz Security, which said it had disbanded four days ago. The group's six main members joined a larger Internet campaign called AntiSec, or "Anti-Security," along with members of the online vigilante group Anonymous.
Together, the groups have released passwords and user data stolen from a Universal Music affiliated website, as well as details of Viacom Inc.'s (VIA) computer networks.
