Fraternal Order of Police - data dumped by hacker

INDYRADIO (28jan16) On Wednesday, a small portion of 18 terabytes of data obtained from the Fraternal Order of Police was publicly released.The release itself is news, and gains credibility when you consider who has been re-tweeting @CthulhuSec. The package dropped just about 2 hours ago, Twitter had a serious hiccup and threw me a server error, but quickly recovered.  That's where the story is breaking - https://twitter.com/CthulhuSec 

Last week, after some uncomfortable moments with UK security personnel, Cthulhu released an encrypted "insurance file" and distributed keys to a select group of people. (Cthulhu tweeted to clarify this has no relation to the FOP release) The full text follows below.

The text from his "insurance release" follows below:

"Many have asked for a comment concerning my most recent “Insurance” release. Unfortunately at this moment in time, I can’t comment further on it. I am hoping it never needs to be released and that it will fade away over time, but I also need a guarantee I can pull the trigger on a particular issue should I need to resort to drastic measures.

As I posted on my Twitter, today I was in the custody of a UK intelligence agency/law enforcement. Legally speaking, I have been advised not to make further comment on the matter for now. Should the circumstances change on that front, I will do my best to update everyone.

For everyone on Twitter – many thanks for everyone sharing the file and taking a copy for reference in future should it be released. I do not believe in giving control of material to a single group of journalists, for it does not allow for proper interrogation of the data, nor do I believe any one group of people should be entitled to privileged access in a matter of public interest. For that reason, I made it distributed in a way I believe to be fairest to all.

Following Snowden’s retweet of my post, my servers have been struggling to keep up. As a result, accessing the links are difficult now, so I suggest using the torrent or magnet link. To download using the magnet, you can click below:

As I have time to review my situation and other matters, I will post what I can. But for now, after a long night and day, I need to rest. So I thank everyone who has sent messages of support today – they really do wonders for my morale when it gets tough."
