A whistleblower has leaked sensitive documents related to the development of offensive cyber tools by NTC Vulkan, a Moscow-based IT contractor firm. The documents describe the development of hacking tools for not just Russian military and intelligence agencies but also for the Russia-linked APT group Sandworm. The leaked documents, known as The Vulkan Files, cover details of three projects – Scan, Amesit, and Krystal-2B – and reveal the tools used in several global cyber operations, including the blackout in Ukraine, the development of the NotPetya malware, and the attacks on the Olympics in South Korea. These projects point toward a common set of goals of strategic information confrontation via cyber operations.
