Hackers tried to sell NFT with Alexander Lukashenko’s passport data

A group of hackers “Belarusian Cyber ​​Partisans” gained access to the passport data of the country’s President Alexander Lukashenko. The hackers tried to sell them as a collectible token (NFT).

“Cyber ​​partisans” reported that they had gained access to the government database, which stores the passport data of every citizen of Belarus, including Alexander Lukashenko. The hackers released an NFT collection called “Passports of Belarusians”, which also contains the passport of the country’s president.

“For the first time in the history of mankind, hacker activists obtained the passport data of all the inhabitants of the country. And now we offer the opportunity to become a part of this history. Get a unique digital version of Lukashenka’s passport in the form of NFT. We also offer the passports of his closest associates and traitors to the people,” the hackers said.

However, many members of the crypto community doubt the authenticity of the data. So, the hackers made a typo on the first page of the passport, as well as a mistake in the name “Alexander”.

Cyber ​​guerrillas tried to place their NFT collection on OpenSea, however, according to a platform representative, such a collection violates the rules, so it was removed from publication.

Elliptic previously reported that from July 2021 to July 2022, hackers were able to steal over $100 million worth of NFTs.
