Policemen entered the offices of TAD Group, where the computer scientist Kristian Boykov accused of cyber attacks against NRA works. At the moment, the objectives of the action are not clear. The company has already announced that they stand behind their employee and do not intend to “unlock” their computers for the investigators.
At the same time, earlier today, the state prosecution said that one of the computers seized by Boykov revealed information according to which he had collected NRA data larger than that sent to the media the day before the first email from which the attack was announced.
“If at the initial stage of the investigation we considered that Kristian Boykov is the only perpetrator of a computer crime, we already have enough reasons to believe that he is not alone”, said Chief Prosecutor Sotir Tsatsarov. According to him, the attack can be interpreted in any way. “It can be interpreted as a political, business-corporate, depends on the database you have, the database that is illegally harvested, and the purposes for which it is used”, he noted.
“We have evidence, despite the expectation that the computer will not be decrypted, that 3 days before the leak of the NRA’s data, Kristian Boykov had the information”, he said. Tsatsarov also said that Boykov is the author of the emails sent to the media. “We are looking for evidence and I’m sure we will find that other people are involved too”, he said.
“The hacker attack on the NRA comes from Bulgaria”, he also said.
