PHOENIX (AP) - A group that boasts of successfully hacking Sony and the CIA website now claims to have hacked into the computer files of an Arizona law enforcement agency.

The Lulz Security hacking collective announced Thursday that it was releasing “hundreds of private intelligence bulletins, training manuals, personal email correspondence, names, phone numbers, addresses and passwords belonging to Arizona law enforcement.”

The cyber attackers say they were specifically targeting the Arizona Department of Public Safety because of the state’s tough immigration policy.

Calls to the Arizona DPS and FBI officials weren’t immediately returned Thursday evening.

But one DPS officer says he’s aware his home phone number, email and home address have been posted and is in the process of getting his phone number changed.
