Anonymous Hacks Police Websites in LA & MS

via Sun Herald --
Mississippi and Louisiana sheriff’s offices on a hackers’ list appeared unaware on Saturday that any sensitive information on their websites might have been published online -- or even that their websites were down. At least seven sheriff’s offices in Mississippi and one in Louisiana were among about 70 law enforcement websites that the group called Anonymous said it hacked, stealing data in retaliation for arrests of its sympathizers in the U.S. and Britain. But Tishomingo County, Miss., was the only one of those eight where someone on duty Saturday knew the website was down. Officials also knew about the hacking allegations. Other sheriff’s office sites on the group’s list that were not working Saturday were in Cameron Parish, La., and Adams, George, Jefferson, Prentiss, Tate and Tunica counties in Mississippi. 
Anonymous published officers names, birthdates, Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, and the names of informants and tipsters from police departments around the country. Have a look.
