A hacker group known as SiegedSec, known for its audacious tactics and recently emerging in the dark web hacking scene, has claimed responsibility for a substantial data breach at the multi-billion-dollar investment platform PeerBerry.
In a cheeky tone, they humorously cited “its for teh lulz!” as their motivation for the exploit. The breach resulted in the release of a massive 20GB cache of critical information, including admin logs, personally identifiable data, and sensitive financial records. SiegedSec not only announced the breach but also taunted PeerBerry and urged them to bolster their security measures.
The hacker group provided a Gofile link alongside their announcement, offering a glimpse into the leaked data. However, at the time of the report, PeerBerry had not issued an official response, leaving the situation surrounding the breach in uncertainty.
SiegedSec, despite being a relatively new threat actor, has claimed numerous cyberattacks since its inception. The group’s targets have ranged across various industries and geographic locations, with evidence suggesting that they have infiltrated sensitive data and leaked it.
While the extent of the damage caused by SiegedSec remains unclear, the leaked data poses a significant threat, potentially enabling other threat actors to seek unauthorized access.
This PeerBerry data breach is part of a growing trend of cyberattacks, emphasizing the importance of robust cybersecurity measures to safeguard sensitive information and mitigate the risks associated with such incidents. The Cyber Express will continue to monitor the situation for updates or an official statement from PeerBerry.
