Hackers may have hit state cops' site: Pro-ISIS group posted addresses, cellphone numbers
ST. PAUL -- Personal information posted about dozens of Minnesota police officers, allegedly by a group affiliated with ISIS, may have been hacked from the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association website.
“That is one theory that the FBI is working on,” MPPOA executive director Dennis Flaherty said Tuesday of what he’s been told.
The Caliphate Cyber Army, a pro-ISIS hacker group, posted information Monday about 34 people, including some home addresses and cellphone numbers, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute’s Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor. Each entry also said, “Wanted to be killed.”
