Hackers publish personal data on thousands of US police officers and federal agents

A programmer bunch has ruptured a few FBI-partnered sites and transferred their substance to the web, including many records containing the individual data of thousands of government operators and law implementation officers, TechCrunch has learned.

The programmers broke three locales related with the FBI National Academy Association, an alliance of various parts over the U.S. advancing government and law authorization administration and preparing situated at the FBI preparing institute in Quantico, VA. The programmers misused defects on no less than three of the association's part sites — which we're not naming — and downloaded the substance of each web server.

The programmers at that point put the information up for download individually site, which we're additionally not naming nor connecting to given the affectability of the information.

The spreadsheets contained around 4,000 extraordinary records after copies were expelled, including part names, a blend of individual and government email addresses, work titles, telephone numbers and their postal locations. The FBINAA couldn't be gone after remark outside of business hours. On the off chance that we hear back, we'll update.

TechCrunch addressed one of the programmers, who didn't recognize his or her name, through a scrambled talk late Friday.

"We hacked in excess of 1,000 destinations," said the programmer. "Presently we are organizing every one of the information, and soon they will be sold. I think something different will distribute from the rundown of hacked government destinations." We inquired as to whether the programmer was stressed that the documents they set up for download would put administrative operators and law implementation in danger. "Presumably, yes," the programmer said.

The programmer professed to have "over a million information" [sic] on representatives over a few U.S. government offices and open administration associations.

It's normal for information to be stolen and sold in programmer gatherings and in commercial centers on the dull web, yet the programmers said they would offer the information for nothing to demonstrate that they had something "fascinating."

Unprompted, the programmer sent a connection to another FBINAA part site they professed to have hacked. When we opened the page in a Tor program session, the site had been ruined — noticeably showing a screen capture of the encoded visit minutes sooner.

The programmer — one of more than ten, they said — utilized open adventures, showing that a large number of the sites they hit weren't state-of-the-art and had obsolete modules.

In the encoded talk, the programmer additionally given proof of other broke sites, including a subdomain having a place with assembling monster Foxconn. One of the connections gave did not require a username or a secret word but rather uncovered the back-end to a Lotus-based webmail framework containing a great many worker records, including email locations and telephone numbers.

Their true objective: "Experience and cash," the programmer said.
