Hacker Group Posts Addresses Of Top Oakland Officials

OAKLAND (CBS/AP) — The hacker group Anonymous appears to have posted the addresses and other personal information of Oakland city officials to the Internet.

The information went up on Tuesday on a website attributed to the group. An accompanying note expresses anger over police action against members of Occupy Oakland and budget cuts finalized by the city.

Mayor Jean Quan, Police Chief Howard Jordan and City Council members were among those whose information was included in the posting.

KCBS’ Holly Quan Reports:

Occupy Oakland protesters and police clashed last month when protesters tried to take over a vacant building in the city. Police used tear gas to disperse the crowds and arrested hundreds of people.

Also last month, the City Council finalized $28 million in budget cuts that included about 80 layoffs.

    Regardless of how we feel about city officials and their right to privacy, we should admit that Anonymous is living up to its name. This is internet stalking, committed by cowards. If they want to feel courageous, they should post their own personal imformation.

      Some have. Just saying.

      Anonymous isn’t about hiding. It’s about not distracting from the message.

      You can be wide open exposed and still run with us.
