Hackers from Anonymous managed to intercept correspondence of the Security Bureau of Ukraine. It was revealed that SBU was hiring foreign specialists.
The hackers gained access to the correspondence between SBU Headquarters and the head of the department in the Sumy region, Mr. Ivanchuk. It was said in the intercepted messages that the Security Bureau of Ukraine was supposed to accept "English-speaking specialists" and provide all sorts of assistance for them.
The message from June 7, 2014 contains a list of employees recommended for transfer to another area or dismissal, in connection with the "complicated political situation," Segodnya.Ua reports.
In addition, all employees of the SBU in the Sumy region were instructed to collected documents, translated into English. It was also recommended to strengthen the work of the department to teach basic European languages to employees.
The press service of the SBU in the Sumy declined to comment the news, citing the lack of evidence. At the same time, during another telephone conversation, it was acknowledged that some employees were indeed transferred to other regions, although it was a scheduled procedure.
According to Anonymous, gaining access to correspondence was made possible thanks to the low computer literacy of Sumy IT-specialists, who forwarded emails from a secure SBU mail account to free mail server online.ua. Experts on cyber security studied the intercepted correspondence and confirmed its authenticity.
Foreign, particularly English-speaking military instructors are quite common for the Ukrainian army. It is known, for example, that the storm of the city of Mariupol was supervised by English-speaking commanders.
