The Russian oligarchs and Kremlin apparatchiks spared by WikiLeaks in the past will not be so lucky this week, when transparency activists drop a massive archive of leaked docs.
National Security Correspondent. Russian oligarchs and Kremlin apparatchiks may find the tables turned on them later this week when a new leak site unleashes a compilation of hundreds of thousands of hacked s and gigabytes of leaked documents. The site, Distributed Denial of Secretswas founded last month by transparency activists.
Co-founder Emma Best said the Russian leaks, slated for release Friday, will bring into one place dozens of different archives of hacked material that, at best, have been difficult to locate, and in some cases appear to have disappeared entirely from the web.
Its objective is to provide researchers and journalists with a central repository where they can find the terabytes of hacked and leaked documents that are appearing on the internet with growing regularity. The site is a kind of academic library or a museum for leak scholars, housing such diverse artifacts as the files North Korea stole from Sony inand a leak from the Special State Protection Service of Azerbaijan.
While barely known in the West, hacker groups like Shaltai Boltai, Ukrainian Cyber Alliance, and CyberHunta have been penetrating and exposing Russian secrets for years. Last year, Best agreed to help another journalist locate a particular Shaltai Boltai leak, a hunt that sent her into the world of Russian hacktivism.
I do some digging, ask around, and manage to stir up a good bit more.
Once word got around that Best was collecting Russian hacks, the floodgates opened. Then an organization with its own collection of Russia leaks opened its archives to Best and her colleagues. The DDoS project compiled more thans into a spreheet for ease of searching. DDoS mitigated that danger in its Russian leaks using the same technique WikiLeaks employed to authenticate the DNC s—verifying the cryptographic atures added by the receiving mail server under a security standard called DKIM.
The DDoS project received some pushback ahead of its December launch over plans to include the Ashley Madison leak, which exposed thousands of users of the infidelity dating site. Though the project is less than two months old, Best is already feeling the creeping paranoia that comes with publishing secrets.
They reacted quickly. It may have been nothing, Best added.
