‘Anonymous’ claims to have hacked into Russian federal agency and leaked 360,000 documents


The hacker group “Anonymous” claimed to have leaked the database of Roskomnadzor, a Russian federal executive agency. The agency is responsible for supervising communications, information technology and mass media in Russia. A few days ago, the group claimed to have hacked into Russian streaming services and TV news channels. They then released footage from Ukraine amid the country’s war with Russia. Roskomnadzor is the watchdog that has restricted access to Facebook, accusing the US tech giant of censorship and violating the rights of Russian citizens. The regulator, Roskomnadzor, said in a statement that it is “adopting measures to partially restrict access” to Facebook.

On Thursday, the anonymous Ukrainian group said it hacked Roskomnadzor.
