BART Police Get Hacked

MSNBC, By RJ Middleton, August 17, 2011

Hacktivist group Anonymous sent out a tweet today, via the @OpBart account, stating: “Leaked personal data, emails and passwords for 102 #BART police officers: bit.ly/r20DxB #OpBART.” According to SF Weekly, the person taking credit for hacking the BART Police Officers Association website, claims to be a French girl, doing her first hack. The girl, who goes by the name Lamaline_5mg, said it was incredibly easy to do.  Again, via @OpBart, Anonymous stated they are not taking credit, and they do not condone the action. Beyond the question of who did the hacking or why, the fact remains that the BART police website was hacked Wednesday.It’s the second successful hack of BART since the transit service chose to cut off cell phone reception to stave off a protest. Wednesday’s hacked site, for the BART Police Officers’ Association, was taken offline. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44179478/ns/technology_and_science-security/
