Hackers stole the data of hundreds of thousands of Russian prisoners from the FSIN

The international group of hackers broke into the databases of the Russian Federal Service for the Execution of Sentences (FSIN). This was reported by CNN. They were able to download information about hundreds of thousands of Russian prisoners, including those from the “Polar Wolf” colony, where Alexei Navalny was serving his sentence.

Hackers claim that the database contains information about approximately 800,000 prisoners, their relatives and contacts. CNN checked the database and found repeated lines of data, but even in spite of this, we are still talking about hundreds of thousands of people.

The burglars explained that they were taking revenge for the death of Alexei Navalny in the colony and hope that someone “will contact the relatives of the prisoners and help them understand what happened to Navalny.”

On the FSIN internal website, hackers left a photo of the politician with his wife Yulia and the inscription “Da zdravstvuet Alexey Navalny!”.

In addition, hackers hacked the FSIN online store with goods for prisoners and reduced the prices of all goods to one ruble. According to them, the administrators noticed the changes only after a few hours.

They also posted Navalny’s photo on the store’s website and sent a warning to the administrators that they would not remove the politician’s image, and when they were refused, they destroyed one of the servers.

CNN checked the data in the provided database and found data about people who are actually in Russian prisons. Security experts interviewed by the publication also agreed that the database is real.

  • Alexei Navalny died in the Polar Wolf colony on February 16. In the conclusion about his death, it is said that the politician died of natural causes. Supporters of the politician believe that he was killed. During his imprisonment, Navalny spent more than 300 days in the SHIZO.
