Hacktivist group Anonymous today posted the names of 2800 of the right-wing Columbian Black Eagles Special Police Unit's members online, the published data has been credited as part of it and LulzSec's ongoing Operation Anti-Security.
The data was revealed earlier today via Anonymous Twitter feed. The tweet read, "#AntiSec Results: http://bit.ly/mw48D5 | List of ~2800 officers from the Peruvian Águilas Negras (Black Eagles Special Police Unit)".
The Black Eagles, or Aguilas Negras as the group is known in its native Columbia, are collection of fragmented right wing, counter-revolutionary, paramilitary cells, thought to have been born from the paramilitary Self-Defense Units of Colombia (AUC).
The AUC faction the group originated from was an umbrella organisation of death squads designed to combat the Columbia's leftist guerrilla fighters and generate income through drug trafficking.
The group is commonly thought to have no centralised authority and is fragmented into different cells each with its own chain of command.
The Black Eagles group is infamous for its involvement in numerous massacres and mass displacements across Columbia. As well as drug trafficking, certain cells have been linked to kidnapping, extortion and racketeering.
The release was credited as being a part of it and LulzSec's ongoing Operation Anti-Security. The operation is a new cyber campaign led by the two hacking collectives designed to protest and combat any and all institutions or governments attempts to censor or moderate the internet.
Anonymous is yet to release a formal statement outlining its reasons for the hack.
