Rustam Kurmaev and Partners work with the Russian government and other high-profile banking, media, oil, and industrial companies, including American firms.
The Anonymous hacktivists collective has struck Russia again by leaking approximately 1TB of data from a leading Russian law firm identified as Rustam Kurmaev and Partners (RKP Law).
The news arrives just a day after the collective leaked hundreds of gigabytes of data from the servers of Russia’s largest media holdings with over 100 regional radio stations, Vyberi Radio.
It is worth noting that Anonymous waged a cyberwar against Russia in late February 2022 dubbed #OpRussia after the country invaded Ukrainian territories, referring it to “special military operation” to denazify and demilitarize Ukraine.
The hacktivists who go by the Twitter handle of @DepaixPorteur and @B00daMooda took to Twitter to announce the leaking of the data trove belonging to RKP Law. In one tweet, @DepaixPorteur stated that:
We are Anonymous – We have hacked RKPLaw (rkplawru) and leaked 1TB of files, emails, court files, client files, backups, and more! They have a very large (455 clients) and an interesting client list which I will post in the comments.
Emma Best, a journalist, and co-founder of a non-profit whistleblower organization DDoSecretsDistributed Denial of Secrets, aka DDoSecrets, confirmed the leak. Best also announced that the enormous data dump is also available on DDoSecrets.
On the other hand, @YourAnonNews, and @YourAnonTV, two of the largest social media representatives of the Anonymous movement also tweeted about the data leak stating that:
“Once again, #Anonymous delivers Many thanks to @DepaixPorteur,” tweeted @YourAnonNews. “Just In: #Anonymous released a terabyte of data and emails from Rustam Kurmaev and Partners (RKP Law), a Russian law firm that works with major banking, media, oil, and industrial firms and state interests, including American companies. #OpRussia,” said @YourAnonTV.
