America’s Top Police Union has Documents Hacked from Grand Lodge
A Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) data dump has made its way on-line and available for download courtesy of fop.thecthulhu.com.
It’s unsure who breached and delivered the information to EFF/Pirate Party member Cthulhu, who assures that the source is “credible.”
“The following files were submitted to me through a confidential source, and have asked me to distribute it in the public interest.
I cannot guarantee the authenticity of all parts of the document, but I have been assured the source is credible,” posted technology and privacy activist Cthulhu.
The information dump acquired from a Grand Lodge computer weighs in at 1.2 gigabytes of data and contains encrypted computer files, hundreds of word documents, thousands of pages of material and computer back up files known as images.
30 out of the 577 documents I have opened so far have various groups exchanging details including FOP, government officials, chauffeurs, teamsters and helpers. Many of the records include collective bargaining agreements, communications, revisions, benefit details and voting details.
The data may include sensitive conversations and insight on negotiations.
FOP’s national president Chuck Canterbury responded to the leaks thursday night:
“We have contacted the office of the assistant attorney general in charge of cyber crime, and officials from FBI field offices have already made contact with our staff.”
The FOP website has remained off-line all Thursday evening according to the UK Gaurdian. The organization represents roughly 300,000 law enforcement officers across America .
