Two days before the presidential election in Ukraine scheduled for May 25, the CyberBerkut hackers group, which has repeatedly posted on the Internet documents incriminating the new Kiev authorities, stated that they had destroyed the electronic system of the Ukraine’s Central Election Commission.
“We, CyberBerkut, in protest against legitimization of crimes of the Kiev junta, have completely destroyed the network and computer infrastructure of the Central Election Commission of Ukraine. Taking on full responsibility we declare that the united informational and analytical system “Vibory” created under the complete control of the United States has ceased to exist,” the website of the CyberBerkut activists says.
They also claim that the classified mail correspondence of members of the CEC of Ukraine and technical documentation of system administrators of the CEC and district election commissions is now at their disposal. CyberBerkut promises to publish a report about the software cracking later.
“Our special thanks for a fascinating quest to wonderful administrators who were storing data on access to the network in text files on their desktops,” the hackers noted.
