Hackers have posted personal information about the chief executive of J.P. Morgan Chase in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street protests.

The document released on Pastebin by "CabinCr3w" includes information about CEO James Dimon's addresses, family, business connections, political contributions and legal information. A spokeswoman for J.P. Morgan Chase said the company is declining to comment.

The same hackers posted personal data of Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein and of New York Police Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna earlier this week after Bologna was seen in videos pepper-spraying peaceful demonstrators in the face last weekend. Bologna, who also is accused of unprovoked pepper-spraying of others in other incidents during the demonstrations, is under investigation for those actions.

The protests, which began about two weeks ago, have attracted thousands of participants and garnered the support of Noam Chomsky, filmmaker Michael Moore, actress Susan Sarandon, students, and organized labor groups. The demonstrators are protesting a U.S. financial system that they claim favors the wealthy at the expense of everyone else.

Adbusters and the Anonymous activist collective are behind the movement, which has featured an "occupation" of hundreds camped out in a park near Wall Street and street marches, a la the Arab Spring uprisings earlier this year.

Updated 11:11 a.m. PT with J.P. Morgan Chase declining to comment.
