By Edward Moyer
Hacking collective Anonymous says it has once again leaked sensitive law enforcement information, in time for the National Day of Action Against Police Brutality as well as the opening of the annual conference of the International Association of Chiefs of Police.
According to a report in VentureBeat, Anonymous posted a notice on Pastebin late Friday claiming it had leaked more than 600MB of information gained by hacking into Web sites associated with the International Chiefs of Police (IACP), the Boston Police Patrolmens' Association, and law enforcement agencies in Alabama's Birmingham and Jefferson counties. The notice cited by the blog no longer appears to be on Pastebin, but another release was posted today.
