LulzSec, which was allegedly behind the attack on CIA website, US Senate website, SonyPictures and many more, claimed the credit behind the attack on Arizona Department of Public Safety in retaliation for immigration laws.
"We are releasing hundreds of private intelligence bulletins, training manuals, personal email correspondence, names, phone numbers, addresses and passwords belonging to Arizona law enforcement," LulzSec said in a statement.
"We are targeting AZDPS specifically because we are against SB1070 and the racial profiling anti-immigrant police state that is Arizona," it added.
Arizona Department of Public Safety has confirmed the attack and said they were "looking into" the matter. Officials added that they have taken "additional security safeguards" to meet further consequences.
In recent times, hackers were targeting government and high profile corporate websites. Sony, Citibank, IMF and many other government websites were became the victim of the high profile hacking.
Moreover, Lulz Security recently announced that they are teaming up with another hacker group Anonymous to attack more government and bank websites for stealing confidential information.
