Anonymous and Antisec factions dumped files on the net Friday detailing data from the computer systems of multiple law enforcement agencies and a law enforcement vendor, including the International Association of Chiefs of Police, Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association, and the Baldwin County Sheriff’s office in Alabama.
Additionally, the groups took down a number of law enforcement domains virtual hosted together, and according to the notice, the site’s homepages were defaced, replaced with an anti-police rap video. At the time of publication, the domains simply return fail to load, sending a “Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)” message.
The notice says the attack is in support of the so-called 99% movement, a reference to the Occupy Wall Street protests spreading around the world, and is retaliation against law enforcement for mistreatment of #occupywallstreet, particularly in Boston. The notice references a 600mb data dump which reportedly includes the IACP membership roster; 1000 names, ranks, addresses, phone numbers, and social security number for police officers in Birmingham and Jefferson Counties; 1,000 names and cleartext passwords for the BPPA; and the client list and financials for Matrix Group, a DC-based web design and marketing firm with law enforcement customers.
