Kiselev says Shaltay-Boltay attack did no damage to his reputation
The charges were brought against Vladimir Anikeev, the leader of Shaltay-Boltay hacking group.
TV host Dmitry Kiselev said when Shaltay-Boltay hacked his email account last spring, they did no damage to his reputation whatsoever, RBC wrote.
Kiselev stressed that the incident was a breach of privacy. "It was the family email account," he specified. The TV host spoke to RBC confirming that he had turned to law enforcement agencies.
On April 7, law enforcement officials recognized Kiselev and Russian presidential aide Andrei Belousov as victims in Shaltay-Boltay case. RBC reported the fact that they filed claims to the law enforcement agencies back on March 17.
The charges were brought against Vladimir Anikeev, the leader of Shaltay-Boltay hacking group. He is accused of six incidents of email hacking. Besides Anikeev, two other men were arrested in the case: Alexander Filinov and Konstantin Teplyakov.
According to law enforcement officials, Anikeev, as well as other Shaltay-Boltay hackers, would attack mobile devices and e-mails of officials and businessmen, and then would sell the information they stole.
The city police detained two officers of the Russian FSB and the deputy chief of the Internal Affairs Directorate for the North-East Administrative District Department of the Interior Ministry of Russia for Moscow, who are suspected of bribe-taking.
