Cyber War Against Russia: Anonymous Collective has hacked Sberbank and Leaked a lot of Data
As per the recent tweets, it claimed that an anonymous collective has hacked Sberbank and leaked several numbers of emails, phone numbers, and addresses. This bank is a majority-owned Russian banking and financial services firm with its headquarters in Moscow. This is one of Russia’s largest banks. One of the users speculated that the data released could have belonged to a Sberbank independent appraiser. The tweet includes a link to a zip file containing the disclosed data.
Sberbank operates in several European countries, especially post-Soviet republics. By 2022, the bank would control almost a third of all Russian bank assets. The bank’s rise since the 1990s has been aided by its ties to the Russian government.
Previously, Analysts from cybersecurity firm DeviceLock had disclosed information on a big Sberbank data leak with the newspaper Kommersant in October 2019. On the black market, the private details of up to 60 million Sberbank credit cards have been put up for auction. It was the most serious data leak in Russian financial history.

Peace discussions between the two countries are currently underway, although it is uncertain how long the violence will continue. These cyber groups have stated that they will stand with Ukraine against Russia’s massive online forces, disrupting order to hinder Russia’s attacks on Ukraine and the West.
