FERGUSON, Mo. (CNN) – The FBI has opened an investigation of hacking attacks directed at the personal computers and accounts of police officers who are part of the law enforcement response in Ferguson, Missouri, three U.S. law enforcement officials told CNN.

The cyber attacks are believed to be the work of hackers affiliated with the group Anonymous, the officials said Friday.

It’s not clear how much personal data was compromised by these alleged cyber attacks, but it’s one reason why officers working the streets of Ferguson aren’t displaying their names on their uniforms, according to the officials.
