They also hacked the group behind the boycott of “All-American Muslim.”
(Washington Times) — Computer hackers are avenging the Occupy movement by exposing the personal information of police officers who evicted protesters and threatening family-values advocates who led a boycott of an American Muslim television show.
In three Internet postings last week, hackers from the loose online coalition called Anonymous published the email and physical addresses, phone numbers and, in some cases, salary details of thousands of law enforcement officers all over the country.
The hackers said they were retaliating for police violence during evictions of Occupy protest camps in cities around the country, but law enforcement advocates slammed the disclosures as dangerous.
“I hope the individuals behind these cyberattacks understand the consequences of what they are doing,” said John Adler, president of theFederal Law Enforcement Officers Association. “There are very dangerous criminals out there who might seek retribution” against any of these police officers.
Another hacker calling himself ihazcAnNONz struck the website of the Florida Family Association. The group opposes gay marriage and has promoted a successful but highly controversial boycott of advertisers on the reality TV show “All-American Muslim.”
