Suspected Right Sector Hackers Breach Polish Ministry, Demand $50,000
On Thursday, media reported that a group of hackers, who portray themselves as members of the Right Sector, an Ukrainian nationalist organization, outlawed in Russia, carried out a cyberattack on the Polish Defense Ministry database and demanded Warsaw to pay $50,000 for the database not to be made public.

The hackers released a small amount of the stolen information, which included personal data of the employees, to confirm that they were not bluffing and had serious intentions if the government did not pay the demanded amount of money.
