(Newser) – A second computer hacking attack in two weeks against Arizona state police targeted the personal email accounts of some of its officers, an official confirmed yesterday. The Arizona Department of Public Safety is reviewing the information released by a group calling itself AntiSec. An attack last week by the computer hacking collective group Lulz Security targeted officers' DPS emails. LulzSec said Saturday that it was disbanding, but the new postings appeared similar and referenced the earlier attack.

AntiSec said in an online post that it was hitting Arizona police again and "dumping booty pirated from a dozen Arizona police officer's personal email accounts looking specifically for humiliating dirt." It said the new leak "has names, addresses, phone numbers, passwords, social security numbers, online dating account info, voicemails, chat logs, and seductive girlfriend pictures belonging to a dozen Arizona police officers."
