San Francisco’s BART transit system has a website hacked for 2nd time
(CNN) — A hacker publicly posted Wed
nesday the home addresses and other information of all 102 police officers with San Francisco’s Bay Area Transit system, the second hacking incident against one of its websites since Sunday, a spokesman said.
The website for the BART Police Officers Association was broken into Wednesday morning, and the names and phone numbers of its entire membership were also posted publicly on the Internet, BART spokesman James K. Allison said.
The officers association, or union, took down their website after the hacking incident, Allison said.
It wasn’t clear Wednesday who was to blame for the latest hacking incident.
In the prior hacking incident on Sunday, members of the well-known hacking group Anonymous took credit in online messages for breaking into a link off BART’s website, and information from BART’s internal network was posted, including phone numbers of hundreds of people.
BART has been at the center of controversy about shootings by its officers, the latest being last month that resulted in the death of Charles Hill, 45.
