BOSTON, Oct. 23 (UPI) -- Participants in Occupy Boston denied they worked with a hacker group that allegedly posted police officers' e-mail access codes on the Internet.

The Boston Police Patrolmen's Association Saturday confirmed the passwords and user names of 1,000 BPD officers had been made public by the hacker group Anonymous.

Anonymous, which also allegedly posted the personal data of 1,000 officers in Birmingham, Ala., said the action was retaliation for recent arrests of Occupy Boston protesters.

But demonstrators told the Boston Herald they never recruited Anonymous to do the hacking. Some told the newspaper they were nervous about being too critical because they feared their personal information could be compromised as well.
