“The president of “TAD Group” didn’t want to contribute in any way to the investigation – he didn’t give access to any passwords in order to decipher the computer configurations from the police raids. The head of the Antiterrorism department of the Specialized Prosecutor’s office – Evgenia Stankova – gave details before the trial where Ivan Todorov should receive an accusation for instigation towards cyber terrorism.
The proof gathered from witnesses’ testimonies state that particular companies were chosen intentionally for such cyber attacks.
After employees of the National Revenue Agency have been interrogated, it turned out that the data belonging to more than 5,1 million citizens was copied – including PIN, registration numbers of their automobiles, etc. Their personal data was submitted to different websites (including “Bivol”)”, continued Stankova.
"There are evidences for a secret online conversation between one of the accused people and one of the owners of “Bivol” where the copied data was provided”, added the prosecutor.
The companies included in the data-breach were chosen intentionally. The analyses show that the cyber attack aimed at leading to social instability, creating confusion and panic for uncountable number of Bulgarian citizens and destabilization of the political situation in Bulgaria”, stated Emilia Stankova.
There are evidences for another breach – in the server of “Irrigation systems” in front of the Parliament. The intention was in case that automobiles of dignitaries or guests in the Parliament pass by, the system activates so it brings difficulties to their travelling”, continued Stankova.
