A STOUSH between activists and San Francisco's subway operator BART has escalated with the leaking of personal details of scores of transit police officers.
Names, home addresses, email addresses and passwords belonging to more than 100 officers were leaked online, after hackers gained access to a BART police union database.
The leak comes after a protest earlier this week which led to the closure of several subway stations, and the hacking and
defacement of several BART websites.
Another earlier hack also saw the personal details of more than 2000 commuters published.
An Anonymous Twitter account announced the latest breach and linked to the leaked police details, but did not immediately claim credit for the hack.
The stoush was sparked last week when BART officials cut mobile phone services to commuters to thwart a protest planned over the fatal shooting of a man by transit officers.
