A GROUP claiming to be part of the notorious Anonymous hacktivist network leaked thousands of Spanish police names, contact details and passwords.
Information of around 5400 police officers were released by the group @FkPoliceAnonOps on Wednesday, who said it was revenge for Spain’s controversial new ‘gag law’.
The dumped information gave access to the police’s social security database.
The group said: “We are publishing a list of members of your ‘force’ in order to make you understand how thin is the curtain (or the balaclava) behind which you are hiding. Make no mistake, with every action comes a counter reaction and we all have to pay for our acts!”
Spain’s gag law includes restrictions on photographing the police and organising protests, and is seen by many as curtailing human rights and restricting freedom of speech.
