Hackers breached the database of the Romanian Chamber of Deputies, the lower house of the Parliament, after a recent cyber attack.
They reportedly managed to obtain confidential information, such as the prime minister’s identity documents, medical analyses, and other personal data. The hackers threatened to release the personal data of the deputies if they did not receive a ransom. They even published some of the information, including identity cards, specifically those of prime minister Marcel Ciolacu and UDMR leader Kelemen Hunor. The PM said on Wednesday, January 31, that he would change his ID card following this incident.
