Arizona’s police force has become the latest victim of hacker group LulzSec. About 700 confidential documents belonging to the Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) were stolen and published online. The cache includes e-mails, memos and training manuals as well as intelligence bulletins detailing work with informants. The group said it had targeted AZDPS because of a controversial state law designed to stop illegal immigration. “We are aware of computer issues,” Steve Harrison, a spokesman for the force told Reuters. “We’re looking into it. And of course we’re taking additional security safeguards.”
