Once again, in news first brought to my attention via Defcon Lab, earlier this morning, February 16th 2019, two teams of international hackers going by “TeamGhost” and “AnonGhost Brasil” claimed joint responsibility for a string of hacks and leaks affecting different government agencies and educational institutions throughout Brasil. More specifically named in the leaks are the Secretary of Education and Academic Systems Site of Pernambuco, as well as the SIEPE systems of the Secretary of State of Penambuco, Brasil.
Exposed within the breaches are the root login credentials needed to access the official online web portal of Penambuco’s academic systems, along with various information on city educators, including their names, positions/title, ID numbers – et cetera. The second leak effecting the Secretary of State of Penambuco contains some a little more sensitive information, such as the full names, email addresses and passwords of hundreds of employees affiliated with Secretary’s office. While raw copies of the leaks have since been taken offline and the hackers have removed everything related to the hacks off their social platforms, they did manage to backup the leaks through screen shots of the compromised databases. You can access these images either through the links provided below or by browsing to the bottom of this article.
In a self described manifesto attached to the hacks and leaks, TeamGhost Brasil stated:
“People who don’t know their history are doomed to repeat it. Not only this, but they are also doomed to live a life and future without perspective, because the only way to gain knowledge is by extending yourself beyond your expectations.
The absence of training for what it mean to be a human imbibes people, leaves them imprisoned with a lack of even common sense, in the dogmatism of disconnected opinions, our collective individualism confused with egocentrism, in the easily corruptible consciousness of mankind, living in a corrupt and vain society. It’s the subject who doesn’t understand and lack knowledge of the abstract, because he can only understand what is being taught to them. We learn from the programming on television, because out teachers communicate with us in childish terms. For those of us who want to apply ourselves we seek diplomas or certificates in hopes of achieving social success or political office, the two most viable paths for easy enrichment. But only those at the bottom expect change from those above, because the great secret to humanity is that humans need to be led, and to be led we first need to learn.
