Anonymous hacks police private emails
Members of hacking group Anonymous retrieved the personal email details of private and serving officers from a website, and emailed them directly.
In a message addressed to “members of our U.K. police and armed forces”, they told officers and servicemen to “stand with us” in an upcoming campaign.
The security breach, which happened in a third-party web forum rather than official police computers, is being investigated by the Metropolitan Police Central e-Crime unit. A spokesman insisted no Met Police systems had been compromised and confirmed inquiries were ongoing.
