A group of hackers defaced several Fraternal Order of Police websites across Arizona on Thursday evening, posting the user names, passwords and other information of hundreds of officers.

A release by the hackers, plastered across the homepages of the affected websites, claimed they were releasing information on 1,200 officers. This marks the third major release of documents and personal information on Arizona law enforcement officials within the past week.

The group claims to have defaced 10 websites for different FOP chapters within the state, but only some of them remain that way. Others either quickly restored the sites or took them down while they addressed the issue.

As with the other released documents, the group claims to be protesting SB 1070, the controversial Arizona law targeting illegal immigrants. The first hack was done under the banner of LulzSec, but they claimed to have disbanded on Saturday, their 50th day of existence.

Since then, a group calling itself AntiSec has taken up the cause, posting what it called a "master list" of everything that has been released so far.

Like the other releases, the list contains all the documents said to be available for download via peer-to-peer services. The group is claiming to have gone as far as releasing credit card and Paypal information for one of the officers in the one of the documents.

True to form in their manner of mocking their victims, a music video of the rap song "Hazy Shade of Criminal" by Public Enemy was posted at the top of each hacked page.

AntiSec claims to be an anarchist group working to "resist against the governments and corporations of the world."

The releases have consistently denounced the police as racist and corrupt.
