Cyber Berkut allegedly published customer data from PrivatBank, co-owned by the pro-government Dnipropetrovsk region's governor.
Hacktivist group Kiberberkut, sometimes called Cyber Berkut, accessed and published customer data from a major Ukrainian commercial bank co-owned by the head of the pro-government Dnipropetrovsk region.
The attackers announced July 4 the breach of PrivatBank’s systems on Vkontakte, Russia’s rendition of Facebook.
“The group explained in a statement that they had analyzed the tactics of another hacking group, Green Dragon, who crippled PrivatBank's website on [June 30] with a distributed denial-of-service attack,” Moscow Times reports.
