Suspected Hacker Reportedly Terminates All Negotiations and Pledges to Make all the Data Public. Hackers have announced that more audio leaks of government officials to be released on the Dark Web on Friday, September 30. The audio leaks will reportedly contain conversations between government officials including journalists and military personnel. The audio leaks will also include conversations about judicial appointments and engagements with foreign delegations among other things.
PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry has claimed that 100 hours-long conversations of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif have been put up for sale on the dark web for $3.5 million. He criticised security agencies for overlooking the “sensitive” matter of audio leaks. Expressing shock over purported leaked audio clips of government officials, Fawad said, “Even the office of the prime minister of the nuclear-armed country is not safe.”
Another PTI leader Mirza Shahzad Akbar said the audio leak scandal was not a hacking. But definitely an inside job, aimed at influencing the government’s decision-making ahead of the crucial appointment. “First it’s not a hack into the system [and] hacker [and] dark web seems cover story, our systems are based on analogue and not digital, in fact, that’s one way of Pak cyber security,” he said while sharing his sources-based information on the matter.
