Hackers Publish Data on Thousands of US Police Officers and Federal Agents

Police investigated Saturday the online posting by a hacker category of their personal information of hundreds of federal agents and police officers discharged from websites.

Here it is worth mention that according to a TechCrunch report late Friday, the hackers breached three websites associated with the FBI National Academy Association located at the FBI training academy in Quantico, Virginia.

At the same time, in the commentary to the publication, one of the hackers on condition of anonymity, stated that over a thousand websites had been hacked, and access was received to "more than a million data" about employees in several US federal agencies and state services. Not only are they building their own websites, but they've also released the source code of their very own ransomware variant and claim to be in possession of several important/critical databases worldwide. TechCrunch said yesterday that the hackers were able to collect names, email addresses, mailing addresses, phone numbers, and job titles of at least 4,000 law enforcement officials, some of which they posted publicly. Essentially, the release of Federal Bureau of Investigation data was meant to show how serious they are - as well as to attract the attention of future buyers. The hackers, whose identity is still unknown whether they are an independent group or nation-state actors, used public exploits, indicating that "many of the websites they hit weren't up-to-date and had outdated plugins".

A hacker group believed to be based in Ukraine has uploaded more than one thousand US law officers' personal information, TechCrunch scooped Friday.
