Chinese hackers attacked critical IT infrastructure of Kazakhstan

Astana. February 21. KazTAG – Chinese hackers attacked the critical IT infrastructure of Kazakhstan, reports the Center for Analysis and Investigation of Cyber Attacks.
“The volume and nature of the data indicates systemic errors in the information security system in our country. Available leak materials indicate that at least one hacker group had full access to the critical infrastructure of Kazakhstani telecom operators for more than two years. It is clear that we have an incomplete amount of information at our disposal, which Kazakhstan allowed to be stolen,” reads the message.
Leaks were registered in the systems of Kazakhtelecom, Beeline, Kcell and Tele2.
“Hackers monitored operator event logs, call duration, device IMEI and call billing. The leak contains files with information about subscribers of telecom operators. Data from IDNET and IDTV users with personal data of subscribers, their logins and passwords have also been published. The leak also mentions the UAPF (Unified National Pension Fund of the Republic of Kazakhstan) for 2019,” the report said
