On the night of August 7, pro-Ukrainian hackers hacked the website of the Moscow City Bureau of Technical Inventory. Important Stories drew attention to this.
MosgorBTI is engaged in the technical accounting of Moscow real estate: it collects information about apartments, residential high-rise buildings, private houses, suburban areas, including information about the owners of real estate in Moscow.
A message was published on the organization’s website stating that the hackers had received all the data on the places of residence and property of residents of the Russian capital. “Information about civil servants, politicians, military and intelligence agencies supporting the war with Ukraine has been handed over to the Ukrainian Defense Forces,” the statement said. The MosgorBTI website is still not working.
The message of the hackers also contains links to their pages on Twitter and Telegram. Their tweet says they are hackers working for peace in Ukraine. This account was mentioned in connection with the largest cyberattack on Rutube in May 2022. Also, this hacker group took responsibility for hacking the website of the Skolkovo Foundation system, “Important stories” indicate.
Later, MosgorBTI confirmed the hacking of the site, but stated that “no data leakage was allowed.” “The attackers gained access only to the publication of materials on the site. Information about real estate and owners is stored in a separate database, securely protected. The site is only a channel for ordering documents and is not directly connected to the institution’s information systems,” the organization said.
After “Important Stories” is indicated, the hackers began posting screenshots, presumably from a real estate database they obtained.
