America’s Biggest Police Union 2.5 GB Database Leaked Online
America's Biggest Police Union 2.5 GB Database Leaked Online.
An unknown hacker online breached the US biggest police union,(Fraternal Order Of Police) and dumped 2.5 GB of data.
"He received the data dump from a hacker who wanted to remain anonymous. He also stated that he got more than 18 TB of data but only chose to release 2.5 GB for now, due to the fact that some of it was labeled as classified or sensitive."

"The information should not be used to attack the police; it should be used to help them address their problems and correct them. A society cannot be at peace when the citizens and the enforcers of the law are at war," Cthulhu said on his blog.
