Hackers Dump Online Personal Data Of Thousands Of FBI Agents & Law Enforcement Officers



An unknown group of hackers on Friday broke into several FBI-affiliated websites and dumped online data that contained the personal information of thousands of federal agents and law enforcement officers.

According to TechCrunch, "the hackers breached websites associated with the FBI National Academy Association, a coalition of different chapters across the U.S. promoting federal and law enforcement leadership and training located at the FBI training academy in Quantico, Virginia."

TechCrunch says the the stolen data includes member names, a mix of personal and government email addresses, job titles, phone numbers and their postal addresses.


The hackers who claimed to have "over a million data" on employees across several federal agencies and public service organisations in the US, uploaded the stolen data on their own website for public download. However, TechCrunch refused to name the website nor put the download link because of the sensitivity of the data.

"We hacked more than 1,000 sites," one of the hackers told TechCrunch via an encrypted chat. "Now we are structuring all the data, and soon they will be sold. I think something else will publish from the list of hacked government sites."

When TechCrunch asked if the hacker was worried that the files they put up for download would put federal agents and law enforcement at risk, the hacker replied, "probably, yes"

"We believe we have identified the three affected Chapters that have been hacked and they are currently working on checking the breach with their data security authorities," the FBINAA said in a statement on Saturday.
