AntiSec reveals 10GB of US police private data

AntiSec hackers said they have made their biggest hack and revealed it to the world by posting 10GB of confidential US law enforcement information, the group revealed in a statement. This move, the group said, is in response to the arrests of Anonymous and LulzSec hackers. The so-called Shooting Sheriffs Saturday dump is said to include private e-mail, passwords, addresses, social security, credit card numbers, informants, training files, and more.

The hacking group hopes to embarrass, discredit and incriminate police officers across the US with this information. The information was a result of hacking more than 70 law enforcement agencies. AntiSec bragged that just 24 hours was needed to hack the sites.

The captured credit card numbers were even used to make donations to the ACLU, the EFF and the Bradley Manning Support Network, among others. [via TechLand]
