Ukrainian activists have compromised 2,337 messages in the Microsoft Outlook
accounts of two assistants to a top aide of Vladimir Putin. An anonymous
Slashdot reader quotes NBC News: A Ukrainian group calling itself Cyber Hunta
has released more than a gigabyte of emails and other material from the office
of one of Vladimir Putin's top aides, Vladislav Surkov, that show Russia's
fingerprints all over the separatist movement in Ukraine. While the Kremlin has
denied the relationship between Moscow and the separatists, the emails show in
great detail how Russia controlled virtually every detail of the separatist
effort in the Russian-speaking regions of Ukraine, which has torn the country
apart and led to a Russian takeover of Crimea... "This is a serious hack," said
Maks Czuperski, head of the Digital Forensic Research Lab of the Atlantic
Council, which has searched through the email dump and placed selected emails
online. "We have seen so much happen to the United States, other countries at
the hands of Russia," said Czuperski. "Not so much to Russia. It was only a
question of time that some of the anonymous guys like Cyber Hunta would come to
strike them back." A senior U.S. intelligence official told NBC News that the
U.S. "had no role" in the breach -- but when asked if the material was
authentic, replied there was "nothing to indicate otherwise."
