On Thursday, a group that boasts of successfully hacking Sony and the CIA web page in recent months, claimed to have hacked into the computer files of an Arizona law enforcement agency.

The Lulz Security hacking collective said on its web site 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."

Several DPS officers contacted by The Associated Press said they were inundated with calls Thursday evening and most were trying to get their phone number immediately changed.
