We would like to assure our members that the data breach of the FOP Grand Lodge does NOT include data held by the Labor Council.

On Thursday Janurary 29th, the databases and private forums of the FOP Grand Lodge web site were breached by an unknown hacker or hackers (claims of this being the work of the hacking group "Anonymous" have been debunked), and data taken from the site released to the Internet. According to FOP president Chuck Canterbury, "the data [breech] is a complete [breech] of our data". Reports so far have publicized private forum posts and some contract information.

We are taking extra security measures in light of these attacks to protect your sensitive information. If you were a participant in the members-only forums of the Grand Lodge, we strongly urge you to consider changing the passwords to you use on other web sites and e-mail accounts.
