Hackers attack BART again

Posted on August 18, 2011

SAN FRANCISCO — In a second cyber attack on the Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) for turning off cellphone service in its San Francisco stations to thwart a potential protest, hackers posted personal information of more than 100 transit police officers on the website operated by The Bay Area Rapid Transit Police Officers' Association, the AP reported.

The information leaked included home and email addresses and passwords. The activist group Anonymous claimed responsibility for the first hacking incident, but not the second.

In cutting cellphone service, BART was trying to calm a brewing protest over the police shooting and killing of a homeless man they claim lunged at them with a knife. The planned protest never materialized. For the full story, click here.
