Motherboard: Hacker Steals 700,000 Accounts from Police Forum (Story Has Been Updated)

Motherboard: Hacker Steals 700,000 Accounts from Police Forum. The story has been updated since being published on Friday, and it’s not clear if this was a hack, an old hack, a data leak, or something else. Because it is a very large breach, and because it does involve breaching the privacy and security of law enforcement personnel, I am linking to it here. “Update: After the publication of this story, another source provided Motherboard with the full PoliceOne database. In all, it contains 715,588 entries. However, the source said that this data has already been publicly distributed for some time, and that Bekrut did not hack the site. Bekrut did not respond for Motherboard’s request for comment.”
