The official government website of Argentina’s Chaco Province has allegedly been compromised in a cyberattack attributed to hacker group ThreatSec.
This Chaco Province data breach, which has raised concerns over the security of sensitive information, has highlighted the urgency for enhanced cybersecurity measures in the region.
ThreatSec hackers group made the claim, asserting their successful breach of the official government website of Chaco Province (http://chaco.gov.ar).
The Chaco Province Data Breach
According to the group’s statement, they managed to extract a total of 810 files, some of which contained classified police documents and financial records. Their message on the dark web conveyed a mix of audacity and dissent, echoing sentiments of discontent with the government.
The Cyber Express reached out to province authorities for a statement regarding the Chaco province data breach. As of now, no official response or statement has been provided, leaving the claims surrounding the Chaco Province cyberattack unverified.
While Argentina has not been immune to cyber threats, the country has been relatively fortunate in avoiding major cyberattacks. However, in early 2023, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) approved a $30 million loan to fund the implementation of the Cybersecurity Program for Critical Information Infrastructures (CII) in Argentina. This initiative aims to mitigate the impact of cyberattacks through early detection and response.
Who is the ThreatSec hackers group?
ThreatSec hackers group is one of the newest hacking groups targeting global organization. In August 2023, the group claimed a cyberattack on the data center under the jurisdiction of the Indonesian government. The group is known for changing their modus operandi, hindering early detection from security organizations.
In a conversation with Cybertechwiz, Threatsec, led by founder Wiz, expressed their plans and goals for targeting organization. They target corrupt governments, dismissing money as their motive. Their recent hack on Greece’s government site aimed to expose widespread corruption.
The hacker group believes that they operate to make the world slightly better, addressing gaps where aid should be provided. Wiz keeps team size and locations secret but clarifies they’re outside the U.S. due to hacker-unfriendly policies.
