The hackers claim to not be another Anonymous and not hacktivists against the government and just looking to make the internet safer.

No attack technique details have been released but as for the State of California they also dumped username/password details for 4 administrators. The passwords aren’t in plain text but unfortunately MD5 is the next best thing.
In the past, this hacker group has hacked government websites such as NASA and the ESA. A security officer from ESA actually did disclose the method of attack was SQL injection which confirms my suspicions of what they are probably using in most of these attacks.
