The original upload said that “[ALERT] INDONESIA SUKOHARJO Regency government personnel data (6K) was exposed to the deep web by a rogue actor.”
The file also contained the logo of the Sukoharjo Regency Government and a message that the personal data of the 6,000 employees, including their full name, email address, and phone number, had been compromised.
The hashtag #sukoharjo became popular on Twitter as a result of hackers disclosing information about Sukoharjo Regency Government workers.
Suyamto, the Director of the Sukoharjo Regency’s Communication and Informatics Service (Kominfo), confirmed the occurrence when contacted. According to Suyamto, as of right now, the data was terminated early on Saturday, October 9, 2022.
Suyamto added that the Sukoharjo CSIRT Team has tracked and closed. Suyamto replied that the hacker was the same but collaborated with other hackers when questioned if the hacker “bjorka” who attacked the Ministry of Communication and Information was the same hacker who bombed the data.
