Internationally known internet activists “Anonymous” allegedly once again accessed networked computer systems of law enforcement in Alabama and Texas according
to today’s “Daily Open Source Infrastructure Report” that was released at 5:55 AM this morning by the Department of Homeland Security. The fact that individuals

access some information about sex offenders and specific personally identifiable information. Original data about the breach suggests seven spread sheets were accessed.
According t the government security brief “DataBreaches summed up the hacks, revealing the hackers managed to obtain tons of sensitive data, butpublished only enough to prove the sites are vulnerable, making sure no innocent individual suffers. “ The main hackers wereCabinCr3w and w0rmer, but it seems they were assisted by Kahuna in the breach that targeted the Mobile Police Department."
They were asked by databreaches.net their intent for use of the information and their response was
