Anonymous takes credit for LAPD info leak
Members of the group say they posted officers' home addreses and names of their children
LOS ANGELES — A member of a hacking group affiliated with international hacking group Anonymous told a radio station today that the group was responsible for posting the personal information of more than two dozen members of the Los Angeles Police Department's command staff.
The hacker group @CabinCr3w sent out a Twitter message Monday that provided information on officers' backgrounds, including home addresses, campaign contributions, property records, and in some cases names of their children.
A member of the group wrote to KPCC-FM (89.3) in an online chatroom that the group posted the information because of the LAPD raid on the Occupy LA encampment and the treatment of protesters.
