Gov.br - Hacked, 3TB of Sensitive Data Downloaded

Gov.br - Hacked, 3TB of Sensitive Data Downloaded.

Threat actor Everest has stolen over 3TB of data from the Brazilian government. The databreach includes passports, CPF, RG numbers, tax documents and other sensitive personal data.

CPF or Cadastro de Pessoas Físicas (Natural Persons Register) is an 11-digit tax number given to all residents of Brazil. RG or Registro Geral (General Registry) is the official identity document in Brazil.

One example published on Everest leak page:

The leak was published:2022-09-19-13:31 and the message reads:

For sale access to the gov.br network.

Access to 3 networks, all linked to a gov.br domain .The package is not sold separately as all accesses are interconnected.
There is more than 3 TB of data associated with the sector on the main access. A huge amount of CPF, RG, Passport,tax documents and other personal data. The sale includes multiple employee working accesses. Access to databases and so on VPN login details + Credentials + some extra rdp connections to
All information is exclusive and can be of great value especially before the upcoming elections.
It also includes a company access that serves more than 5.5 million people.

This leak could probably have been prevented if gov.br had some kind of cybersecurity staff watching the Dark Web and hacker forums, plus only allowed for text based emails, with no clickable links.

I wrote an article on 27/08/22 - Brazil Government Site Hacked - Data for Sale on "WebShell Access" to gov.br and gob.mx being sold on a hacker forum by user invisible for $150 USD.

It would not be surprising if they purchased this access from the hacker or insider.
