The announcement was made by an unknown person under the nickname Temagami. Unauthorized access by hackers to Kodex Global allows, without revealing their identity, to request personal data from users of digital and social platforms, and also jeopardizes the privacy and financial security of customers, Hudson Rock experts explain. The hacker most likely gained access to the Codex Global system through Infostealer malware infection of computers belonging to unidentified law enforcement officers.
"These are real law enforcement officers who neglected cybersecurity measures and allowed their account data to be intercepted. It is extremely important that all interested organizations pay attention to the event and establish proper security protocols so that only legitimate account holders can access such systems," Hudson Rock experts warn.
At least 50 unauthorized access points to Kodex Global are known, among which are the credentials of real employees of the Brazilian Civil Police, the Arkansas Police (USA), the Italian GDF agency, the Portuguese Judicial Research Center, and so on.
