Data analysis report of the hacker attack on Xplain

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) took over responsibility for incident management in the Federal Administration in the wake of the hacker attack on Xplain, a major provider of IT services to national and cantonal authorities. Part of its activities involved analysing the data that the perpetrators published on the darknet. The NCSC released a report today explaining its analysis and providing information on what type of data was affected and the challenges as-sociated with analysing the data. The report does not evaluate the content of the data, nor does it analyse why certain data was leaked. The latter question will be clarified as part of the ongoing administrative investigation.
