For the first time in known history, hackers from within Russia have begun a systemized effort to hack Russian government affiliated websites.
Earlier today, Oct. 2, Kyiv Post was contacted by hackers who identified themselves as part of the National Republican Army (NRA). As Kyiv Post has reported before, the NRA is an organization of Russian citizens seeking the overthrow of the Putin Government.
The NRA hackers explained to Kyiv Post that they had executed an advanced ransomware attack on the network of Unisoftware, a Russian software development company known for the development and implementation of web applications, desktop systems, cloud, and API solutions.
The NRA hackers claimed to have stolen copies of all of Unisoftware’s data, including but not limited to: credentials for bank accounts and personal accounts, sensitive employee information, phone numbers, addresses, contracts, and proprietary code for Unisoftware’s clients and software. The group has threatened to release the data and all obtained information if not paid promptly by Unisoftware.
