The hacker team boasted of hacking Sberbank.
“I just hacked Sberbank, one of the largest banks in Russia, and made 5,030 emails, phone numbers and addresses public,” he tweeted @ Anonymous_23_00. The information was then provided by the account @YourAnonOne, the largest activity account of the Anonymous collective.
Anyone who has been following Anonymous since they “declared war on Russia” might have guessed that a DDOS attack on the Sberbank homepage was behind such a statement. This type of attack usually annoys users and administrators, but is never particularly serious.
In light of what Anonymous has “done” this time around, the DDOS attack deserves a mention.
What did they actually hack and steal from Anonymous?
The attacker published the stolen “emails”, numbers and addresses. To begin with, he was not stealing emails, but email addresses. These are not even confidential addresses of clients or employees, but public addresses of companies operating in Russia. The list was probably prepared by an independent appraiser working with Sberbank in 2016.
In the stolen files, one can find, for example, documents such as the “List of assets and short-term liabilities” or “List of types of futures contracts traded in the FORTS system.”
Anonymous DDOS attacks have never been particularly serious for Russia, but they have had at least some effect.
The hacker collective Anonymous “gave war” to Russia in connection with the invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022.
