Belarusian KGB allegedly breached, hackers dox over 8600 agents

Cyber Partisans, a Belarusian group of hacktivists, have claimed that they infiltrated the KGB, the state’s secret service. They shared data on more than 8600 KGB agents and also started to reveal the alleged KGB informants in other countries.

“The official website of the KGB of the Republic of Belarus has not been working for more than 2 months. And all because the Cyber ​​Partisans got there in the fall of 2023 and pumped out all the available information,” Cyber Partisans said on its Telegram channel.

“Alas, we made a little noise and had to close the site. We are posting a list of admins as proof. See the site database and server logs in a separate post.”

Cyber Partisans also launched a bot on Telegram that recognizes alleged KGB agents from user-provided photos.

The provided screenshots include photos of alleged KGB agents and employees with full names and birth dates and an empty web page of the Belarus KGB website, saying “the site is under construction.” The KGB website was still unavailable on Monday at the time of writing.

Group coordinator Yuliana Shametavets told The Associated Press that the attack on the KGB “was a response” to the public accusations by the agency’s chief Ivan Terlen that the group was plotting attacks on the country’s critical infrastructure, including a nuclear power plant.

The hacktivists also claim that KGB informants filled 40 thousand forms over 9 years, including offers for cooperation from foreign citizens. Some provided informant letters were received from Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Ukraine, and Azerbaijan.

Previously, Cyber Partisans claimed to have stolen the passport details of every citizen of Belarus. They turned the passport of the country’s authoritarian president Aleksandr Lukashenko into an NFT. Previously, Cyber Partisans have claimed cyberattacks against the Russian General Radio Frequency Center, Belarusian Railways, police, and state media.

The Cyber Partisans have been actively opposing the Lukashenko regime. The group has also expressed its support for Ukraine after Russia started its full-scale invasion of the country.
