The data leaked by the Anonymous affiliate group contains 4,000 files and more than 900,000 emails from Russian state-run television and radio broadcaster VGTRK (aka All-Russia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company).
NB65 (Network Battalion 65) is a hacker group linked with the Anonymous hacktivist collective. The group claims to have breached the server of Russian state-run television and radio broadcaster called the “All-Russia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company” (VGTRK).
Anonymous’ Twitter account (@YourAnonTV) also tweeted about the hack on their handle this week, revealing that hackers have leaked around 800 GB of data online.
