Hundreds of riders on the Bay Area Rapid Transit system in northern California have their personal information exposed.
The hacker group “Anonymous” broke into a BART website as part of a protest which could also include a service disruption on Monday afternoon. BART officials shut down the myBART website Sunday and urged site subscribers to alter their passwords on other sites if they use the same password as they do for their myBART account. The hacker group posted names, street addresses and other personal data of at least 24-hundred subscribers. The group is angry about the deadly shooting of a homeless man last month by BART police and is upset the transit authority shut down cell phone communications aboard its trains and at its train stations.
