AZ - Hackers target DPS because they oppose SB 1070

AZ - Hackers target DPS because they oppose SB 1070...The AZ Dept. of Public Safety said Friday that an international group of hackers appeared to have breached a vulnerable spot in its network by accessing the e-mail of seven of its officers stationed in "remote areas" of the state. Those 7 officers were part of a separate e-mail system that did not require users to update their passwords on a regular basis, nor require a more complex combination of capital and lowercase letters and numbers as their entry code. "Because we have people stationed all over the state, not everyone is on the same password requirements," "We were in the process of changing that system over already. Obviously, this will make us go a little faster."
