The transport company in San Francisco again hacked

Another website AreaRapid Bay Transit (BART), the railway serving including the City of San Francisco, was the victim of a computer intrusion, Wednesday, Aug. 17. This time, hackers have uncovered data about 100 members of security forces employed by the company. The email addresses and passwords of people have been particularly exposed.

Bartpoa site. com also remains inaccessible on Thursday morning. If this new attack is not explicitly claimed by the group of hacktivists Anonymous, it comes just days after another piracy site BART. Thousands of personal data of users were then posted online. The FBI was in charge of the investigation.

Since July, the California company BART is in the heart of a debate on freedom of expression. August 11, BART has temporarily cut off mobile phone networks in some of its stations. The railway said he wanted to guard against excesses of an event, after a man was shot dead in a station in San Francisco in early July.

The organization Electronic Frontier Foundation had denounced "a shameful attack on freedom of expression."
