Hacker group LulzSec has posted a collection of data it claims to have lifted from law enforcement officials in the state of Arizona.
The group on Thursday issued a statement along with a collection of data it said was lifted from the Arizona Department of Public Safety. Along with contact information and user credentials, the collection of information includes training materials, email conversations and intelligence documents.
LulzSec said the attack was carried out in large part as a statement against Arizona's controversial SB1070 immigration law.
"Every week we plan on releasing more classified documents and embarrassing personal details of military and law enforcement in an effort not just to reveal their racist and corrupt nature but to purposefully sabotage their efforts to terrorise communities fighting an unjust 'war on drugs'," LulzSec said in the statement.
"Hackers of the world are uniting and taking direct action against our common oppressors, the government, corporations, police, and militaries of the world."
While the site of the Arizona Department of Public Safety was inaccessible at the time of publishing, both Reuters and the Wall Street Journal have reported the documents confirmed as authentic.
Along with the Arizona breach, a group said to be the Brazillian branch of LulzSec has laid claim to a data leak in that country. A LulzSec group from Columbia has also posted what it says are a list of personal details gathered from the country's government.
The attacks are the latest turn in what has been yet another eventful week for LulzSec. On Monday, police in the UK arrested a 19-year old-man who is believed to have taken part in the group's attack on SOCA.
LulzSec has since denied that Ryan Cleary was involved in its attack, maintaining that the Essex teen simply maintained an IRC server which the group used on occasion.
