LulzSec’s First Secret Document Dump Hits Web One Day Early

LulzSec’s First Secret Document Dump Hits Web One Day Early

LulzSec had vowed to expose secret government documents, saying that the dump was set to Friday. As far as “Western” societies are concerned, Friday isn’t for another several hours. Still, that hasn’t stopped LulzSec from dumping the classified documents now.

Yesterday, we reported on LulzSec saying that they will dump classified documents. The contents of the first dump was, up to now, completely unknown. Now, we know exactly what they released.

According to LulzSec’s posting on The Pirate Bay, the document dump consists of secret documents for Arizona’s police department. From the release notes:

We are releasing hundreds of private intelligence bulletins, training manuals, personal email correspondence, names, phone numbers, addresses and passwords belonging to Arizona law enforcement. We are targeting AZDPS specifically because we are against SB1070 and the racial profiling anti-immigrant police state that is Arizona.

The documents classified as “law enforcement sensitive”, “not for public distribution”, and “for official use only” are primarily related to border patrol and counter-terrorism operations and describe the use of informants to infiltrate various gangs, cartels, motorcycle clubs, Nazi groups, and protest movements.

Every week we plan on releasing more classified documents and embarassing 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 terrorize communities fighting an unjust “war on drugs”.

Hackers of the world are uniting and taking direct action against our common oppressors – the government, corporations, police, and militaries of the world.

See you again real soon! ;D

The file is 446.6 MB, so it’s no small file dump either when it comes to secret material. The question, at this point, becomes, what are the specifics of this content anyway? It is very likely going to require a certain amount of crowdsourcing to figure out for those who are gutsy enough to download the file.

What this release does do, though, is say that when LulzSec says they are going to release something, they can be trusted to do so. On the surface, this does seem quite significant.

i think it would be better if law be more clear about cyber criminality consequence and police enforcement a better budget for web surveillance.

I love HACKERS big time; only an average person who is still a "FREE BIRD inside a ca" would oppose! People should be happy that them HACKERS we are talking about here these days are actually enlightening YOU, instead of stealing your money. When they steal your money; they don't get so much critics, but more when giving back to the community!!! WTF? Excuse my lingua....136667Killer instinct

I thank Lutz for this disclosure and look forward to their future disclosures. There is so much "hidden" stuff out there to reveal. Getting it from local and state gov't computers is a real innovation in the field.I would be very grateful is someone would download the full file and post it to rapidshare or some download site. I do not have access to torrents on my work computer and AT$T throttles down the connection speed for by home connection.Please keep up the good work.

People that have problems with police are usually criminals.--------If the police have a problem with you, that MAKES you a criminal. People who don't do as they are forced, are criminals. Your master makes new rules, the overseer enforces, the fed keeps enslaving, and the slaves submit.

This is really not such a bright idea. I hope they have not revealed names of confidential informants or details of situations which could lead people to the identities of undercover officers. This sort of reckless data dumping can get people killed. Whether you agree or not with somebody's stand on an issue, you don't show your displeasure by getting them or third parties killed.

I live in Arizona, and I wasn't afraid to download this. BTW, AZ4Life, SB1070 was not voted on by anyone, it was implemented by our government without allowing voters to have a say. I personally support it, because unlike most, I've read it, and it's not racial profiling. I'm Mexican and I have never had any problems living here or any problems with the police. People that have problems with police are usually criminals.

LulzSec should be dropped off in Jarez or any of the border towns! This ain't Tiajuana (to you Califonians)! Innocent people are dying every day in war zones. Phoenix's serial rapist was deported multiple times. My daughter is one of two English speaking kids in her class. How is that fair!? My grandparents on both sides imigrated to this county LEGALLY. That's the difference LulzSec. An immigrants first act when stepping into the United States shouldn't be an illegal one! SB1070 does not create imigration laws, it helps law enforcment agencies enforce what's been on the books. Oh yeah, and the citizens of Arizona voted for it because we and our borders are in trouble... not because we are racist.

I suppose none of you rocket scientists have figured out that the State of Arizona cannot classify documents... at least not and have them considered classified anywhere other than inside AZ law enforcement and punishable under AZ law.

A lot of GOOD people doing GOOD things are going to be hurt by this. And that includes the citizens of Arizona as well as law enforcement officers. I hope that LulzSec gets mugged and tries to call the police!

Releasing classified documents is a crime, but downloading, reading, or publishing released documents is in no way illegal. That's why reporters cannot be arrest for reading or publishing leaked information.

Why would you be insane to download it? I bet every news(paper) site out there has someone downloading it now, same as when WikiLeaks posted, and they didnt get ass-raped by the law. I cant remember reading of anyone being arrested ...

Oh come on. It's public now. Download and analyze it. Every other reputable news organization has done so with wikileaks files, so why not this? You really think it's different to download via BitTorrent vs. a static host?It's a bit frustrating to read a news article about a document dump written by a "journalist" who's too afraid to actually report on its content. Guess I'll just do it myself. It really doesn't require "guts."

I'm not antilulz by any means, but you must be insane to even consider downloading it! Not for malware but rather for holding classifies docs! Wait till it's hosted somewhere or on pastebin

the real effort will be in determining the authenticity of the documents. certainly all the documents are not likely counterfeit, the effort to produce them would seem extraordinary. but whether some of the documents were altered or tampered with is another issue. something to keep in mind.

Well spoken, AZZ. And I have to say, I'm a more than a little uncomfortable when clueless euro-trash start interfering in areas they obviously know nothing. LulzSec, here's a newsflash; no one cares what your political opinions are. Not here...not there. That's why most of you still live in your parent's basement. Go buy some new comic books, and chill.

Really and seriously, who cares? Your idiotic rant really doesn't pertain to the info on described above it's about the corruption of AZ and it's enforcement officials and politicians. So seriously fuck off and illegal immigrants are the least of the US's problems, Obesity is and yes I live in the United damned states of America so seriously go fuck yourself. this country will ingest itself before long and i plan to be out of it way the hell before then.

Heh. I saw what the US government did to Wikileaks supporters and others. Besides, I can't scan through nearly 500MB of content in 30 seconds. :P

Red, you are as clueless as you are classless. The best thing for you now would be for mommy and daddy to kick you out of the basement so you might learn something about the real world. What a f*tard!
