ODIN Intelligence website is defaced as hackers claim breach

Source: news.yahoo.com 1/15/23

The website for ODIN Intelligence, a company that provides technology and tools for law enforcement and police departments, was defaced on Sunday.

The apparent hack comes days after Wired reported that an app developed by the company, SweepWizard, which allows police to manage and coordinate multi-agency raids, had a significant security vulnerability that exposed personal information of police suspects and sensitive details of upcoming police operations to the open web.

ODIN provides apps, like SweepWizard and other technologies, to law enforcement departments. It also provides a service called SONAR, or the Sex Offender Notification and Registration system, used by state and local law enforcement to remotely manage registered sex offenders.

It’s nice to see ACSOL keeping an eye on the database. It’s also nice to note the absence of cyber security from ODIN. Live by the sword And die by its vulnerability too. Assisting law enforcement was identified as the secondary ( alternative) purpose by the purveyors of the registry regime as challenged to Smith v Doe03.
Obviously it was going to be the default primary, especially when considering political security.

manage registered sex offenders” in other word managing RSO who are NOT on probation or parolee.

What is with these vermin jumping on the “S.O. Registries” bandwagon …… Creating databases, searchable algorithms, tracking data, etc.?? Seriously, WTF??!! 😡
We have enough sh*t to deal with – we don’t need these parasites harassing us as well.
Kudos to the hackers!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
‘Hope they really f*ked them up! 😡

What a shame. Who will take credit?

People who are making money off of big governments’ carceral business are immoral. Shame if they are harmed every day until the rest in hell.

it seems that people do a lot of sick things especially with this.

Gee, what a shame

WIRED found data from sweeps going back to 2011, including more than 20 sweeps on Halloween over the years with names like Operation Boo, Operation Hocus Pocus, and Halloween Havoc” according to the Wired article that started the leak. I wonder if a lawyer could get ahold of the data and use it to our benefit.  

“The exposed data contained the location and names of 5,770 suspects, mostly located in California. In some instances, the data included their height, weight, and eye color and indicated whether they were experiencing homelessness. For more than 1,000 of these suspects, SweepWizard also exposed their Social Security numbers. According to the data, several of these suspects were juveniles at the time of the sweeps” this at least should be looked into by ACSOL, however I don’t know what they can do about it. 

If the hackers read this, I hope they leave us alone. We have enough to deal with in our lives as it is. Please send the hate in the other direction, if any is warranted.

One thing we should all be well advised of at this point is the potential for scams, but then, most, if not all of us are probably veterans of the foolishness and won’t give them an inch.

Bless these Hackers. They are doing the Lord’s work!
