Confidential data from the servers of the Kenyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been leaked online by ‘hacktivist’ group, Anonymous.

Anonymous said that it had leaked 1 Terabyte of data from Kenyan government servers in a cyber-attack dubbed ‘OpAfrica’ ostensibly to expose corruption in Africa countries.

On Thursday, Anonymous was quoted by Hackread news platform as saying: “We have 1TB of data but at the moment, we have leaked just one portion of it.

“In few days you will receive full disclosure of the data – We the Anonymous will stand against corruption, child abuse, and child labor!” The government of Kenya should have expected.”

A Nairobi-based Anadolu Agency reporter viewed the data which had been released and verified that it comprised sensitive government data that include: email conversations; letters concerning the security situation in South Sudan; communication within the Kenyan military and international trade agreements, among others.

Also released by the cyber attackers was an internal memo by the ICT administrator at the foreign ministry warning staff that someone was trying to hack personal emails.

Anadolu Agency’s efforts to verify the claims from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the Kenyan capital Nairobi were unsuccessful as all calls went unanswered.

The group has promised to release the full 1 Terabyte of data in sections over the coming days.
