Members of Anonymous recently targeted the Web site for the Oakland Police Department and offered a $1,000 reward for information on the police officer who threw what appeared to be a flash grenade at a protester's head.

"Contact information, schedules, badge numbers, and other information about Oakland Police Department officers was posted to a public Pastebin page," writes CNET News' Elinor Mills.

"Meanwhile, the department's Web site also was down temporarily ... according to SC Magazine," Mills writes.
