AntiSec releases 10GB of confidential government data

After the disbanding of LulzSec, a new formation was created with members from LulzSec and Anonymous with the same goal, to wreak havoc on the Internet and take down governments that don't agree with Wikileaks.

As the Internet seeks for open governments around the world, other members are hacking into government systems and stealing confidential data. Today, the largest cache of law enforcement data has been posted on Torrent websites, 10GB of it, according to boingboing.net.

The information was posted following what the group calls 'F*** FBI Friday'. The AntiSec made their announcement through there unusual means, pastee:

A week after we defaced and destroyed the websites of over 70 law enforcement agencies, we are releasing a massive amount of confidential information that is sure to embarass, discredit and incriminate police officers across the US. Over 10GB of information was leaked including hundreds of private email spools, password information, address and social security numbers, credit card numbers, snitch information, training files, and more. We hope that not only will dropping this info demonstrate the inherently corrupt nature of law enforcement using their own words, as well as result in possibly humiliation, firings, and possible charges against several officers, but that it will also disrupt and sabotage their ability to communicate and terrorize communities.

ZDnet claims that the released cache contains over 300 email accounts, personal information about suspects and police officers, a number of police training videos, and the contents of the anonymous tip system. The cache also includes a large amount of social security numbers and credit cards.
