New Hacker Ring Claims Attack On Cop Sites

ATLANTA, Aug. 7 (UPI) — An apparently new hacking group says it is releasing information it obtained from more than 70 law enforcement agencies in the United States.

The group calling itself AntiSec says it has no qualms about the release of 10 gigabytes of data, which it says includes personal information about police officers and confidential “snitch information.”

“We have no sympathy for any of the officers or informants who may be endangered by the release of their personal information,” AntiSec said in a posting on Pastebin.com.

CNN said Sunday AntiSec claims to be affiliated with hacker rings LulzSec and Anonymous and was retaliating against the investigations into those groups’ alleged intrusions.

CNN said a rundown of the 70 Web sites listed by AntiSec showed some were indeed crashed this weekend; however, several other agencies reported no significant disruptions.
