Anonymous Hackers Publish Oakland Officials' Private Data
The data was published in response to a recent crackdown on Occupy Oakland protestors.
Members of Anonymous recently published several Oakland city officials' personal information online.
"'Anonymous has been watching,' the group wrote on Facebook. 'Since the inception of Occupy Oakland, we have been actively monitoring your behavior and exposing the identities and sensitive information of Officers of the Oakland Police Department; as they have continued to act in an unprofessional and violent matter. You tear gassed us. You shot us with your weapons. You arrested us. You beat us. You also did this to our friends, and to our families. We watched as you cut budgets, cut our jobs, closed our schools, our parks, and our libraries, while leaving your own salaries alone,'" writes CNET News' Daniel Terdiman.
"Not long after, the group released the document containing the officials' private data," Terdiman writes.
