Hacker exposes private data of America’s biggest police union

A hacker has breached the computer systems of the Fraternal Order of Police, the biggest police union in the US. Files containing private information of officers, private forum posts and contracts were included in the data dump.
The anonymous hacker shared the data as a 2.5 GB torrent file on a blog called Cthulhu on Thursday, and it was subsequently circulated via social media. A total of 18 terabytes (TB) of data was stolen, the hacker claims, but only a small fraction has been released so far because of the “classified or sensitive” nature of much of the information.
