LulzSec hackers hit Arizona law enforcement a third time

Hacker group LulzSec, or Lulz Security, barreled past Arizona law enforcement’s cyber-security for a third time this week, posting more information in its latest “Chinga La Migra” info-dump.

On Friday, the LulzSec/Anonymous hacking collective posted a statement on pastebin about the hack.

“For the third knockout blow against Arizona law enforcement, we decided to get destructive,” the statement reads. “We’re defacing eight AZ Fraternal Order of Police websites and releasing a master list of over 1200 officer’s usernames, passwords, and email addresses. Additionally we are leaking hundreds of private FOP documents and
several more mail spools belonging to FOP presidents, vice presidents, secretaries, a police chief, and the FOP Labor Council executive directory and webmaster whose insecure web development skills was responsible for this whole mess.”

“We’re doing this not only because we are opposed to SB1070 and the racist Arizona police state, but because we want a world free from police, prisons and politicians altogether.”

The group said that again, they had found racist email chains, and then asked for public assistance in sifting through the emails of the Arizona police officers.

“The list proved to be too great, and now we are seeking community assistance in going through everybody’s inbox to retrieve and expose their secrets. Go forth and bring mayhem to the lives of these corrupt officers, and tell us what you find,” the group wrote.

The first installment of “Chinga la Migra” was June 23, when the group released police officers’ personal data and targeted them for racial discrimination, as well as an FBI report on “KopBusters” filmmaker Barry Cooper.

Wednesday, in “Part Dos,” they published the personal emails of thirteen Arizona Department of Public Safety officers online.

LulzSec, now under the umbrella of hacking group Anonymous after disbanding June 26, targets what it sees as corrupt governments and corporations, and has posted information from various governments and government agencies, as well as claimed responsibility for the massive Sony hack and the PBS NewsHour hack.
