This morning LexNimbus reported on an FBI raid which took down numerous legitimate corporate accounts by seizing servers in an attempt to track a single account allegedly belonging to a hacker group called LulzSec. Tonight LulzSec responded to the raid by releasing a huge number of hacked Arizona police documents on The Pirate’s Bay, a popular hacking site. The message attached to the file states as follows:
We are releasing hundreds of private intelligence bulletins, training manuals, personal email correspondence, names, phone numbers, addresses and passwords belonging to Arizona law enforcement. We are targeting AZDPS specifically because we are against SB1070 and the racial profiling anti-immigrant police state that is Arizona.
The documents classified as “law enforcement sensitive”, “not for public distribution”, and “for official use only” are primarily related to border patrol and counter-terrorism operations and describe the use of informants to infiltrate various gangs, cartels, motorcycle clubs, Nazi groups, and protest movements.
Every week we plan on releasing more classified documents and embarrassing personal details of military and law enforcement in an effort not just to reveal their racist and corrupt nature but to purposefully sabotage their efforts to terrorize communities fighting an unjust “war on drugs”.
Hackers of the world are uniting and taking direct action against our common oppressors – the government, corporations, police, and militaries of the world.
See you again real soon! ;D
Clearly the FBI still has more hunting to do. Hopefully their search will not take them to any servers containing our reader’s files.
