An unidentified hacker claims to have discovered 986 bitcoin wallets belonging to the FSB and other Russian intelligence agencies. According to CoinDesk, the amount of funds found in the wallets was not disclosed. It is also unclear how the data on the wallets was obtained. A representative of the FSB refused to comment on this information. This is not the first time that hackers have gained access to cryptocurrency wallets belonging to government agencies.
This news raises many questions, including how the hacker managed to gain access to bitcoin wallets belonging to the FSB and other Russian special services. It is also unclear how much money was in these wallets. However, this case is yet another reminder of the importance of keeping cryptocurrency wallets in a safe place and of the need to change passwords and access keys over time.
On the other hand, this situation may lead to the FSB and other Russian intelligence agencies increasing their investments in cryptocurrencies to keep their funds in a safe place and avoid similar incidents in the future. However, it could also be a reason for other governments to adopt stricter cryptocurrency laws and market regulation.
