Bulgarian tax agency breach may have compromised 5 million people

Bulgaria's government is dealing with a massive security breach that might have affected almost all adult residents' information. According to Reuters , the country's finance minister has confirmed that hackers infiltrated the National Revenue Agency's (NRA) network at the end of June, and one of the tax agency's officials said the attack likely originated from outside the country. A person claiming to be a Russian hacker told the Bulgarian media that their group was responsible for the attack in an email sent via a Russian address.
