Nothing To See Here: Cybercriminals Hack Police Department’s Website And Post Uniformed Porn

The Herrin, Illinois Police Department’s official website got hacked early Sunday morning. Cybercriminals looking for a good time posted some graphic photos of a uniformed officer pointing at his…er…naked gun.

Don’t bother hunting for the photos, you perv. I already checked…because I wanted to research this article…for your benefit, of course. There’s only one still circulating out there, and the pertinent feature is blurred.

Herrin Police Chief Quinn Laird reached out to Google to have the police-related porn removed from its search engine. After a few hours, the lewd images were inaccessible. The department also contacted a cybercrime specialist to help track down the guilty culprits.

The good news is that the officer in the photos (whose face was not shown) does not appear to be wearing a legitimate Herrin uniform. His clothing is a slightly different shade of blue, and the partial logo visible in the photos is not like the patches on official uniforms.

So he’s a fake, probably. A fake officer, I mean. Apparently, the rest of him is quite real.

Thankfully, this cybercrime prank didn’t appear to accomplish much in the way of actual crime…other than disruption of the department’s 911 service due to all the related phone calls, that is.
