Arizona has become the Florida of the West, a sunshine-battered national joke (as well as, unfortunately, the setting for one very unfunny tragedy). The home of the Grand Canyon didn't help itself recently when it voluntarily became what hacker group Anonymous (among others) calls a "racist, anti-immigration police state." Name-calling, however, doesn't bring about change — hacking does!
Well, maybe not, but that doesn't mean hackers won't hack. Wrote Anonymous,
We're dumping booty pirated from a dozen Arizona police officers' personal email accounts looking specifically for humiliating dirt. This leak has names, addresses, phone numbers, passwords, social security numbers, online dating account info, voicemails, chat logs, and seductive girlfriend pictures belonging to a dozen Arizona police officers. We found more internal police reports, cops forwarding racist chain emails, K9 drug unit cops who use Percocets, and a convicted sex offender who was part of FOP Maricopa Lodge Five.
And it turns out that Team Anon doesn't write checks it can't cash. It's been confirmed that the data dump — named "Chinga La Migra," Spanish for "Fuck the Border Control" — does in fact include "many family photos, a few pictures of what appears to be one officer's young girlfriend in her underwear, mortgage and tax documents, as well as personal emails." The lesson? Stop leaving racy pictures of your girlfriend in your inbox! Download that shit and delete the email, you n00bs.
