The CabinCr3w group has ‘doxed’ the command staff of the LAPD, releasing personal details about scores of police officers in apparent retaliation for the PD’s approach to the Occupy LA protests. The group has also released lists of the salaries for city employees, which reveals some rather surprising details about how highly paid some city workers seem to be.
The ‘doxing’ is a collection of bizarrely detailed information. For some officers, you can find out all about their mortgages and email addresses, even the layouts of their houses. For others, there’s less information, but it’s still possible to see what organisations they are part of.
So far, it doesn’t look like there’s anything particularly surprising or shocking in the released documents. But it’s clear that the practice of releasing large quantitites of personal information about certain people who have angered hacking groups is a trend that isn’t likely to go away any time soon.
