Members of Anonymous recently targeted Pennsylvania-based Combined Systems.

"Among other things, Combined Systems makes tear gas, and the hackers said that they have struck because it is the anniversary of the Bahrain uprising," writes The Inquirer's Dave Neal. "They claim to have defaced and RM'd it, slang for wiping its web servers."

"As well as defacing the Combined Systems web site, the hackers also released names, addresses, phone numbers and passwords for its employees, and emails and contacts for law enforcement and other agencies that have ordered its wares," Neal writes.
