InformNapalm international community received exclusive right to disclose details of a hacking operation into a corporate portal of the Russian state-owned Channel One http://intra.1tv.ru by the Ukrainian cyber alliance FalconsFlame, Trinity and RUH8.
According to cyber activists, hacking of components of the Russian propaganda machine is part of the project aimed at forcing Russia to de-occupy Donbas and implement its obligations under the Minsk agreements. Cyber attacks are directed exclusively at those elements of Russian propaganda engaged in masking the war crimes of Russian Federation in the territory of Ukraine. The operation began on May 25, yielding its first results on June 5. According to the representatives of the alliance, it will continue until the last Russian soldier leaves Ukrainian soil. As a result of hacking, personal data of all employees of Channel One became available to the public (see list under this link, single archive for download is here). In addition, there were opportunities to break into personal mailboxes and cloud storages of employees who distinguished themselves in the concoction and promotion of aggressive propaganda aimed against Ukraine and its citizens, hackers say.
