about a week ago now i got tagged in a random discord server im in with a screenshot of a romanian government website, it had been defaced and now read "this website has been owned! holy fucking bingle!" an image of a slyveon rotated in the center of the screen. below it there was a link to a telegram channel called KittenSec, it seemed just like any other hack and leak release telegram channel, except it was only just created. their first post is already a brag about how they have hacked the romanian government and archived tons of data including databases and other things. damn, starting out strong.
later that day i was contacted by someone from the group, we chatted a bit, i got a bit more of an idea of the situation and tried to help them get in contact with some journalists who might be interested in a hack that big, but nothing much came out of it at the time. they seemed really busy further working on their #OpRomania and with preparing things for release anyways.
fast forward to two days ago, kittensec has posted another announcement on telegram, the data is being released:
included as is usual with releases like these are various screenshots of documents and internal webportals (click words to see them (i really need to make a small image gallery feature for this blog lmao)). the original leak was provided exclusively via MEGA, which unfortunately already took the file down one day later, which is why i decided to create a torrent mirror for this interesting release.
i have not yet and probably won't analyze this leak for a proper blog post, however i found getting it out there and preserving it as a torrent a valuable enough cause, hopefully this way it can end up in interested hands for coverage.
note: despite the name, aesthetic and usage of the phrase "holy fucking bingle" i have no involvement with kittensec besides creating the torrent mirror of my own accord. i do however have a way to get in contact with the group and can help securely connecting journalists to them.
