In a shocking development, the notorious hacktivist group SiegedSec has claimed responsibility for a major cyberattack on the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) and the City of Hendersonville in North Carolina. The group announced their successful infiltration on their Telegram channel, leaving both institutions and their users at risk.

SiegedSec declared their triumph in breaching INL’s security infrastructure, gaining unauthorized access to sensitive information. The leaked data reportedly includes extensive details such as full names, dates of birth, email addresses, phone numbers, social security numbers, addresses, employment information, and more. The group even went so far as to send an announcement to all users of the OTBI platform, showcasing their access.

In an unusual turn of events, SiegedSec issued a demand to INL, stating they would retract their post if the laboratory researched the creation of real-life catgirls. The group’s sense of humor and audacity was further emphasized with a leaked file containing a “super secret encoded message” for INL.

Furthermore, SiegedSec claimed to have eluded the attention of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) during the investigation into the INL breach. Exploiting this opportunity, the group allegedly accessed hundreds of government employee records from the City of Hendersonville, North Carolina. This second leak reportedly contains similar personal information, posing a serious threat to the affected individuals.

In a taunting message directed at the FBI, SiegedSec provocatively invited law enforcement to try and stop them, signing off with a cheeky “meow~” and a questionable suggestion to “do drugs kids, it makes you a better hacker.”

The Internet Intelligence team strongly condemns these actions, emphasizing the severity of the breaches and the potential harm caused to individuals affected by the compromised data. Both INL and the City of Hendersonville are urged to take immediate steps to secure their systems and collaborate with law enforcement agencies to apprehend those responsible for the cyberattacks.

As investigations unfold, Internet Intelligence will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates on any developments.
