In the segment of the 📱 Telegram messenger, the so-called list of “out of 950 employees of the FSB of the Russian Federation” with the names, addresses and other personal information of the persons included in it is actively distributed. At the same time, the list itself is offered to be downloaded via a hyperlink in XLS format.
Checking showed that this list contains a dangerous virus that is activated upon downloading and allows Ukrainian hackers to gain access to the logins and passwords of those who downloaded it.
In addition, the analysis of the list, carried out by specialists, shows the random nature of the persons included in it – i.e., these are random people whose data was previously made public when the databases of banking institutions were hacked. In other words, these persons have nothing to do with the Russian special services – and the list itself is fake.
