Anonymous, AntiSec release more data from Arizona police

Still hacking away, Anonymous released more data from its raid on the Arizona Department of Public Safety in protest over the state’s immigration policies.

This time, the data is much more personal than the internal documents leaked in the last attack.

“In this second bulletin, we're dumping booty pirated from a dozen Arizona police officer's personal email accounts looking specifically for humiliating dirt,” a release from Anonymous’s AntiSec movement said. “This leak has names, addresses, phone numbers, passwords, Social Security numbers, online dating account info, voicemails, chat logs, and seductive girlfriend pictures belonging to a dozen Arizona police officers.”

The group also claims to have found more internal documents and evidence of a racial discrimination lawsuit against the police department.

A spokesman from the Arizona Department of Public Safety confirmed the second data release and said the department was researching its validity.

AntiSec, or Anti-Security, has risen to take the place of LulzSec, which disbanded last week after several prominent hacks.

A release from the newly formed group pointed to the connections between the groups, saying, “It has been a week since the LulzBoat lowered the LulzSec flag, she now proudly flies under the #AntiSec colors. Since this day, the movement is organized by a flotilla of independent but allied vessels.”

The AntiSec movement, however, said its attacks are politically motivated, as opposed to LulzSec’s attacks, which were intended to cause chaos and expose security holes.
