A group of hackers has leaked the names and personal details of 1003 Belarusian police officers in response to violent police crackdowns against anti-government demonstrations. The published data included names, dates of birth, and the officers' departments and job titles.
«If you know facts about the crimes of specific people on the list, as well as their personal information (addresses, phones, car numbers, habits, mistresses / lovers) - write to the bot [REDACTED]... If the detentions continue, we will continue to publish data on a massive scale», — said the independent Belarusian news agency Nexta on its official Telegram channel.
A spokesperson for the Belarusian Ministry of Internal Affairs confirmed the leak, but also warned that they plan to find and prosecute people responsible for the leak. The website was then taken down with a DDoS attack, according to statements made by various self-proclaimed hackers on Twitter.
