The data of 1,000 employees of the Directorate General of Intelligence (GUR), the military intelligence service of the Ukrainian government, were leaked by the Russian hacker group RaHDit.
The hacker group mentioned how flaws in the protection of the GUR Central Bureau's network on Rivalsky Island and analysis of big data according to user behavior's characteristic patterns aided in shaping the database.
Interestingly, representatives of diplomatic missions in Russia, Austria, Italy, India, Vietnam, Iran, Turkey and South Africa are among the revealed spies. Furthermore, data regarding military intelligence curators in Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria and Slovak, sabotage instructors, as well as representatives of special forces to perform undercover investigations and power intelligence are now also disclosed and available.
RaHDIT also clarified that this batch of data is only the first in an upcoming series.
