Azusa police-files hack included data on confidential informants

AZUSA, Calif. (KABC) -- A hack into the Azusa Police Department is broader than first suspected.

A March ransomware attack released information ranging from payroll files to investigative reports naming confidential informants.

Other data stolen may have included social security, driver's license and passport numbers.

An Azusa police captain said the hack has not affected the department's ability to keep the city safe.

Officials refused to pay any ransom.
