Hackers break into Arizona police computers

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 3:06 am

Computer hackers who previously broke into a U.S. Senate server and brought down the CIA web site struck an Arizona police web site on Thursday, releasing dozens of internal documents over the Internet.

Lulz Security, saying it opposed a tough anti-immigration law in Arizona, said it was releasing documents that related to border control and other law enforcement activities. Its headline was “Chinga La Migra,” Spanish for a more profane way of saying “Screw the Immigration Service.”

It released about a half a gigabyte of data, including account names, passwords and contact information for several people. Reuters was able to reach two of them to establish that they were accurate.

A scan of the dozens of files released revealed what appeared to be security bulletins from other law enforcement agencies, internal planning documents and even routine reports on traffic incidents.
