 Ukrainian hackers provide evidence of access to Surkov’s mailbox, say Peskov is next. PHOTOS

The members of Ukrainian Cyberhunta group provided evidence of access to the e-mail account of Russian president’s aide Vladislav Surkov by making about 1 GB of obtained data publicly available.

Censor.NET reports citing InformNapalm international volunteer community.

"On Monday, Oct. 24, 2016, the majority of Ukrainian and Russian media spread reports on the e-mail account of the Russian president's aide Vladislav Surkov being hacked by the Ukrainian hacktivists. The reaction of the readers to the published data varied. Some found unconvincing the scanned copy of the ID posted on Cyberhunta's website as a preview.

"The official Kremlin also responded to the reports Oct. 25. The presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov [a.k.a Talking Mustache] vaguely answered the journalists' questions. He did not cast doubt on the fact that the Russian presidential aide's e-mail account was hacked, but talked the way out by paying Surkov a compliment calling him "a talented person whom many achievements are attributed to."

"Following numerous readers' requests, InformNapalm community requested additional information, proofs and explanations directly from the alliance of Cyberhunta, FalconsFlame, RUH8 and TRINITY. The new details became known during talks with the hacktivists as well as Microsoft Outlook (.pst) data file containing up to 1GB of information from the hacked prm_surkova@gov.ru mailbox was obtained (RUH8 dump, GOOGLE.DRIVE dump). (Besides, the cyber alliance members got information regarding Peskov as they hacked the mailboxes of assistants and clerks of the Presidential Administration of the Russian Federation, but this data is beyond the scope of this article)," the authors noted.

The activists gained access to Vladislav Surkov's chamber mailbox prm_surkova@gov.ru, as well as the computer located directly in the chamber of the Russian president's aide.

"The hacktivists made files related to the period between September 2013 and November 2014 publicly available. This period covers major events of the active phase of deployment of the Kremlin's Novorossia project. The files relating to the later period between 2015 and 2016 have been submitted to the special services for analysis. They are not to be disclosed due to their operational value.

"The correspondence contains detailed information about vested interests of the Russian Federation in Ukrainian companies [1, 2] and media, including those situated in the occupied territories; on the risks of economic blockade of the "DPR" and "LPR"; complete list and contacts of the staff of the Office of the President of the Russian Federation on Social and Economic Cooperation, personal data and contacts of the so-called leadership of the self-proclaimed "Republic of Abkhazia"; guidelines for intelligence work with "key figures of the Republic of Abkhazia", and much more," the article reads.

Another interesting thing is that even scanned copies of Vladislav Surkov and his family's IDs were found in the correspondence while Schengen visas were in all travel passports (attached pdf files).

Vladislav Surkov was included in the list of sanctions imposed by the EU and U.S. against the Russian Federation in March 2014. He was banned entry to the EU countries and the U.S. However, a scandal broke when Surkov accompanied Putin at the meeting of Normandy Four leaders in Berlin.
