AntiSec: Texas LEA release to include shell access and more

by Steve Ragan - Sep 2 2011, 01:16

Calling it Texas Takedown Thursday, The Tech Herald has learned that the fourth release under the ‘Chinga La Migra’ campaign targets Texas law enforcement agencies (LEA), and includes the emails and personal information for 28 police chiefs. In all, it is expected that nearly 3GB of information will be leaked.

The number means something, as it represents two chiefs for every one of the PayPal 14 appearing in court today in California. The PayPal 14 are the people arrested in July, during a nationwide FBI sweep targeting those associated with Anonymous who allegedly launched DDoS attacks last December.

The Tech Herald’s coverage on those developments are here and here. In all, 16 people were arrested, with 14 of them being arraigned today at the federal courthouse in San Jose.

Thursday’s AntiSec release will include access to the Texas police chief emails, including full messages and attachments, an Anon close to the data told The Tech Herald in a brief interview. As with the previous law enforcement AntiSec leak, these emails will be available via a TOR link and Tor2Web.

The leaked messages are said to contain Internal Affairs related case details, as well as pornographic materials, anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim chain letters, racial profiling reports, and racial profiling complaints.

“For every defendant in the anonymous "conspiracy" we are attacking two top Texas police chiefs, leaking 3GB of their private emails and attachments,” the Anon said.

In addition to the emails, the personal information, including passwords, email account data, addresses, phone numbers, and SSNs, of the officers will be published as well. To add to the pain, the emails contain live logins to Intranets and Police systems, including TLETS, TCLEOSE, and NCIC.

“…and [we] will release live backdoors to the site we're defacing,” the Anon added.

Based on what the Anon told us, the law enforcement officers targeted in Thursday’s release were owned more than a month ago.

“It’s all been owned for nearly a month. We’ve been going to town with their accounts, now we're dumping the info.”


"...they'll have to pull the entire server to take this mofo down..." - an Anon on the site defacement.

The comments below are from the AntiSec press statement on the release. In addition to defacing the website, DDoS attacks are being launched against the US Department of Justice.

"In retaliation for the arrests of dozens of alleged Anonymous suspects, we opened fire on dozens of Texas police departments and stole boatloads of classified police documents and police chief emails across the state. During the San Jose courtdate we defaced and gave out live backdoor and admin access to the website while allied ships launched ddos attacks upon and other law enforcement websites. For every defendant in the anonymous "conspiracy" we are attacking two top Texas police chiefs, leaking 3GB of their private emails and attachments.

"For more than a month we have been lurking their emails, law enforcement portals, and records and reporting systems. We leaked a few teasers including access to, several classified documents, voicemail recordings, live passwords, and even some dirty pictures...Thousands of documents are available on tor hidden services / bittorrent and include several dozen FBI, Border Patrol, and counter-terrorism documents classified as 'law enforcement sensitive' and 'for official use only'.

"The emails also included police records, internal affairs investigations, meeting notes, training materials, officer rosters, security audits, and live password information to government systems. The private chief emails also included several racist and sexist chain email forwards and personal details sure to embarrass, discredit, and incriminate several of these so-called 'community leaders'...

"We are attacking Texas law enforcement as part of "Chinga La Migra" as they continue to harass immigrants and use border patrol operations as a cover for their backwards racist prejudice. The notoriously racist police state of Texas recently passed SB 9 and "Secure Comminities" anti-immigration laws. Texas is well known and hated for being full of Minutemen, Tea Party and KKK groups, murdering the most amount of innocent people on death row, and giving us the Bush and Cheney administration...

"We might have respect for these officers if they understood their job and whom they serve. But unlike some that left the force decades ago and rumors abound that they may have joined our ranks, these officers hide behind their badge and use policies to ignore their great responsibility. These officers betrayed the trust citizens have in them by choosing be drones of the system rather than protectors of freedom and the peace of their communities. From the lowest prison guard to the mightiest chief, we will continue to attack the cogs of the police state that protects the interests of the rich and powerful."
