Europol was attacked – Economx.hu

The European Union's law enforcement agency announced that its information-sharing system, the Europol Experts Platform (EPE), had been attacked. Although the criminals hacked the portal, no sensitive data was leaked, according to the agency.

According to the information available so far, criminals were able to access documents containing confidential data intended for official use only (FOUO) from a closed group of users. Europol stated that central systems were not affected by the incident, so operational data is also safe – He writes HWSW.

Hacker group IntelBroker announced the attack on itself, claiming that it gained access to a large amount of sensitive data, including source code, encrypted documents, files related to procedures and personal information.

According to the hacker group, they gained access inside EPE to the so-called closed group called EC3 SPACE, which is used by nearly 6,000 cybercrime experts around the world.

IntelBroker claims to have released screenshots of the system, as well as a smaller sample of a database containing 9,128 records.

The hacker group also points to the fact that they also gained access to the SIRIUS platform, which supports international evidence sharing, through which data packages were sold on the dark web, and this is also believed to have been verified through screenshots.

All these allegations are in stark contrast to the previously mentioned letter from Europol.

This is not the first time a similar attack has been the subject of a law enforcement agency: in March, it was revealed that the personal data of Catherine de Paul, Europol's executive director, and other high-ranking officials at the agency had been leaked last fall.

IntelBroker itself first entered the scene last December. At the time, the information was allegedly stolen from several government agencies, including ICE, USCIS, the Department of Defense, and the US Army.
