Anonymous targets Oakland officials over handling of Occupy


SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The hacker group Anonymous has released personal information of Oakland officials in a leak it said was in retaliation for the city's treatment of Occupy protesters, and officials on Tuesday decried the move as despicable.
The hacker group released the home addresses, phone numbers, and names of relatives of Oakland's top elected officials late last week, accompanied by a statement that they were "shocked and disgusted" by the treatment of protesters in the city.
In a press conference on Tuesday, city officials pushed back against the leak.
