Anonymous continues to hammer the state of Arizona. It has just released the results of a third hack against the state, called “Chinga La Migra Tres.”
In the hack, announced on pastebin, Anonymous defaced eight Arizona Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) sites and also released a list of over 1200 police officers’ usernames, passwords, and email addresses. They also released “hundreds of private FOP documents and several more mail spools belonging to FOP presidents, vice presidents, secretaries, a police chief, and the FOP Labor Council executive directory and webmaster whose insecure web development skills was responsible for this whole mess.”
In addition to using BitTorrent for the files, Anonymous used two file sharing sites, MediaFire and RemixShare. That makes things easier for those who’d rather not bother with BitTorrent.
Chinga La Migra, as “translated” by the Urban Dictionary, means “f*ck the Border Patrol.” As announced in the original attack, the attacks on Arizona are in reprisal for the state’s controversial SB1070 anti-immigration law. This time, they added that they also wanted to free the world “from police, prisons and politicians altogether.”
In Chinga La Migra, the first attack, the “booty” revealed some police officers’ personal data, including addresses. Wednesday, in “Part Dos,” the hackers published the personal emails of thirteen Arizona Department of Public Safety officers online, as well as images including some “seductive girlfriend pics.”
In Chinga La Migra Tres, Anonymous said they found a number of racist emails and threads, including Springerville’s police chief Mike Nuttal forwarding jokes about torturing “ragheads” and FOP president Brandon L Musgrave forwarding anti-Muslim emails.
The group added that although some of their comrades had already been sifting through the email accounts whose passwords had been leaked, they wanted public assistance to more closely examine the email threads.
“Truth be told we’ve been passing around this password list amongst our black hat comrades for a while now. Much to our amusement we’ve been reading everybody’s emails looking for dirt and personal info, while leaking bits and pieces to expose and instill fear into the crooked cops of Arizona. However the list proved to be too great, and now we are seeking community assistance in going through everybody’s inbox to retrieve and expose their secrets. Go forth and bring mayhem to the lives of these corrupt officers, and tell us what you find on irc.anonops.li #antisec.”
The first attack was actually carried out by LulzSec as part of the AntiSec anti-corruption campaign, which it began in concert with Anonnymous. Since then, LulzSec has disbanded and Anonymous has taken over.
