With hackers vowing to end Ukraine’s aggression, RUSSIAN President Vladimir Putin is facing fresh humiliation with top-secret Kremlin files leaked in a major hack.
Anonymous hacking group has been targeting Russia over their invasion of Ukraine. The previous targets included ISIS, the CIA, and now around 437,500 emails belonging to Russian companies- Aerogas, Forest, and Petrovsky Fort.
The hacking group was able to hack 300,000 emails, a massive trove of data including 244 GB worth of information from Petrovsky Fort. In yet another attack the group attacked the Russian engineering company Aerogas, leaking 145GB worth of information, including 100,000 emails from the company that works closely with Russia’s oil and gas sector.
The attacks are claimed to be an attempt to disrupt Putin’s war effort, it is believed the Russian invasion of Ukraine is fuelled by the revenue made from the country’s oil and gas exports, which make up the backbone of the country’s economy.
In another instance, the hacking group leaked 35.7GB worth of data from Forest, a Russia-based logging firm, including 37,000 emails. Last night the group leaked around 200,000 Kremlin files, vowing that it would keep targeting Putin until he ends his “aggression” against Kyiv.
DDoSecrets mentioned “This dataset was released in the build-up to, in the midst of, or in the aftermath of a cyberwar or hybrid. Therefore, there is an increased chance of malware, ulterior motives and altered or implanted data, or false flags/fake personas.”
Earlier last month the hacking group targeted state-controlled news stations, which includes, Russia 24, Channel One, and Moscow 24, along with streaming services Wink and Ivi, to telecast ongoing military operations launched by Putin in Ukraine.
