Other news sources say officials have confirmed that these appear to be legit. In addition to names, addresses and emails addresses for LEOs, it contains documents detailing how they look for illegal border crossers and other criminals. It also seems to contain names and photos of informants used to penetrate drug cartels, biker gangs and racist groups.

Personally I don’t have a problem with releasing the names and addresses of ‘law enforcement’ types anymore.

The new Wikileaks.

I don’t know how you’d ever find these little faggots, but I wish ST-6 would pay them a visit. Kick ass, take a few names, drop the remains in the sea. Is there a downside?

They’ve already changed the article. That torrent I was complaining about (the 446MB reference in the FR excerpt above) that linked to Pirate Bay is now gone from the article itself and now the author mentions BitTorrent.

Everything I’ve read about them says no. They’re more of a nuisance than anything else using old programs such as WinNuke, trojans Back Orifice, DOS programs and a few others

That right there is a death sentence for someone. The names and addresses of LEO's is enough of a problem but outing informants and undercover is beyond bad. When these hoodlums get caught they all need a long vacation at Gitmo.

You’re right. The article was edited before our eyes. References to them downloading the file has been removed. (Wonder why. /s)

If government employees know where we live - and we are the supposed masters for whom they work, one wonders why they are unhappy with their bosses knowing where they live ?

Or are they convinced that they are the new “Ubermenschen”?

These types are going to make hacking like this into a terrorist level crime. They’re going to ruin the low level stuff and turn all of it into a nasty situation.

Might have unanticipated prospective uses.

LOL! Because some of them will be a lot easier to catch than others.

True, I think they are well aware of the pending risks and that they would be subject to punitive consequences for their complacency.

“These types are going to make hacking like this into a terrorist level crime. They’re going to ruin the low level stuff and turn all of it into a nasty situation.”

I’m beginning to wonder if this isn’t a covert op to give Obama justification for his internet kill switch, internet ID and whatever other controls they want to put on the internet. Kinda like the gunwalker scandal.

This action could be a felony and actually fall under the Intelligence Agents Identity Act of 1983? or 1984.

The hackers are going to get caught by either law enforcement or friends of law enforcement, esp. if any LEO or information is hurt or killed. Then we will see new definition of “payback.”

If this dumping revealed something about me (if I were in law enforcement) which posed a threat to me or my family, nothing in the world could keep me from tracking them down. I do that for a living in another field so finding these creeps would be easy.

Somebody had better roll over to the police right now while they are still in one piece because one the hunt starts, there will be no mercy given.

I’m gonna enjoy watching this show.

If you can personally leak the leakers, why not.

What’s to tell us that all this monkey business isn’t being conducted from, say, Russia or China?

There was a very good article on Wednesday in the WSJ on LulzSec and Anonymous, another similar hacker group. Most of them are hard-left or anarchist teenagers and men in their 20s who are based in Europe, particularly Holland (although there are also some in Russia). They are heros among the “antiglobalization” (which really means anti-US, anti-capitalist) crowd . If you see people at your local riot wearing masks of an evil-looking smiling white man with a pencil-thin moustache and goatee, they’re proclaiming their support for Anonymous.

They often attack things here, of course. They recently hacked both the CIA and a private security company that was being contracted to investigate whether recent attacks on the US Chamber of Commerce had been conducted or paid for by certain labor unions. How they found out about the latter in the first place, I can’t imagine. Probably somebody on the inside at the FBI or CIA, some low-level person like the Wikileaks dweeb.

In any case, I don’t think they even need to have Russia or China controlling them. They’re doing the work of the radical left on their own just for the heck of it.

Yes. 

I don't particularly have a problem with publishing the name and address of any agent of the state with 'police powers'. I'd include judges too.

Ha, I wouldn’t put much stock in what the WSJ says about Anonymous.

The Arizona police department needs to keep their classified data on computers that have no connection to the internet.
