Colombian data leak exposes personal information of Australian Federal Police

Following the release of data taken from the Colombian government by hackers, the identities of covert agents for the Australian Federal Police (AFP) have been made public.

More than five terabytes of sensitive information, including emails, documents, and strategies AFP agents were employing to prevent drug cartels from conducting business in Australia, were leaked by the hacktivist collective Guacamaya.

Details exposed come from 35 AFP operations, some of them still active, while also containing surveillance reports from agents, phone tap recordings, and salary data for Colombian personnel.
