Have you heard that hackers have stolen a massive trove of sensitive data and defaced the website of SyTech, a major contractor working for Russian intelligence agency FSB (Federal Security Service)?

BBC Russia, which reported the breach, said âitâs possible that this is the largest data leak in the history of the work of Russian special services on the Internet.â

The documents included descriptions of dozens of internal projects the company was working on, including ones on de-anonymization of users of the Tor browser and researching the vulnerability of torrents.
