Does anybody know if this is true?

Snatch gang claims the hack of the Department of Defence South Africa and added the military organization to its leak site.​

The Snatch ransomware group added the Department of Defence South Africa to its data leak site.

The mission of the Department of Defence is to provide, manage, prepare and employ defence capabilities commensurate with the needs of South Africa, as regulated by the Constitution, national legislation, parliamentary and executive direction.


The group claims to have stolen Military contracts, internal call signs and personal data, for a total of 1.6 TB of data. If the attack will be confirmed the disclosure of confidential information pose a serious risk to organizations involved in the contracts.

Or if its even worth anyone's money.
Dont we have like 1 operational navy ship an 0 jets ready to scramble?
The only information that is critical is the special forces who is currently operating in Africa. Not sure where they store that information.

But with regards to how many overweight/obese soldiers we have, is not important or sensitive.

On 2nd thought, the other critical information that can be important to criminals is the location of weapons and ammunition, since just about anyone can simply collect these items.

So I personally don't want that info, I want to see the contract info more than anything else and see that info exposed to the public so there can be a further big public scandal for the ANC to deal with

you really think that there is any worth to the documents that the state has online? All the stuff we would be interested either is in filling cabinets in dark basements...that will never be digitalised or in stacks of files in someone offices...when I read, Gov Dept has been hacked, I always go , why? the effort would not exceed the reward...if know your government, you know the state limitation to do this right.

Our lot are stupid enough to keep digital copies and all that, the Gupta leaks proved that beyond a shadow of a doubt.

sure, but on servers...+ hacking any ZA public entity (bar SARS) must be like a job interview practical exercise, ., if not preliminary round, before you even get an interview spot.

Oh I don't think they would necessarily have intentionally put them on the servers, but you know IT departments and automatic backups, and User shares and all that.. its not like the muppet signing the contracts has any clue how all that works, its just on his laptop so surely its safe and secure you know?
