Hackers Publish Personal Data of US Federal Agents

More specifically, the hackers appear to have breached 3 websites belonging to the FBI's National Academy Association - a collection/association of various offices offering law enforcement training and consultation across the United States.

According to the information published, three websites related to the FBI Academy in Quantico (Virginia) were hacked. The hacker claimed to have "over a million data" on employees across several federal agencies and public service organisations in the US. Not only are they building their own websites, but they've also released the source code of their very own ransomware variant and claim to be in possession of several important/critical databases worldwide.

The hacker gave a statement to TechCrunch, saying "We hacked more than 1,000 sites". That is the common procedure for hacks like this: a group of hackers will usually cast a wide net in search of vulnerable websites, break into the ones they find, gather as much information as they can, and sell that data to the highest bidder. "Some information from the hacked government sites may be published", he said. The data contains member names, a mix of personal and government email addresses, job titles, phone numbers and postal addresses. The FBI was yet to speak on the incident.

"The officers of the situation center of SBU cyber security prevented an attempt of the hacker group controlled by the Russian special forces to carry out a preparatory phase of a cyber attack aimed at popular media and telecommunication facilities of Ukraine", the message reads.
