Ukraine’s group of hacktivist volunteers claims it stole 27,000 files from the Russian central bank.
The IT Army of Ukraine said Thursday that all 2.6 gigabytes of the files are available on Anonfiles, and the Telegram account of Mykhailo Fedorov, Ukraine’s minister of digital transformation, touted news of the hack.
“We have a lot of interesting information about personnel, specialized automated banking systems, their output files, the principles of their interaction, KPI systems and other materials that circulate in the networks of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation,” the Fedorov Telegram channel states.
The data accessed by the Ukrainian hacking group included details of financial transactions of the Russian Ministry of Defense and data of military personnel, such as phone and card numbers.
Russian state-owned news agency Tass printed a denial including an assertion from the Bank of Russia that no hack had occurred and that the documents in question had already been available online.
