The Anonymous hacker collective claims to have hacked the Central Bank of Russia and stole accessed 35,000 documents.

Anonymous continues to target Russian government organizations and private businesses, now it is claiming to have hacked the Central Bank of Russia.

The popular hacker collective claims to have compromised the systems of the Central Bank of Russia and stole 35,000 files, it announced that will leak it it in 48 hours.

Since the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, Anonymous has declared war on Russia and launched multiple cyber-attacks against Russian entities, including Russian government sites, state-run media websites, and energy firms.

Anonymous recently declared war on all companies that decided to continue to operate in Russia by paying taxes to the Russian government.

Nestlè is one of the companies that is still operating in Russia after the invasion and Anonymous first threatened the company then hacked it.

This week, the group of hacktivists announced to have hacked Nestlè and leaked 10 GB of sensitive data, including company emails, passwords, and data related to business customers.

The group leaked a sample of data containing more than 50K Nestlé business customers.
