Media expert Samvel Martirosyan today told reporters that Azerbaijanis have released a large number of Armenians’ passport photos,and it is assumed that they have been sent to a credit organization.
“In the past month, Azerbaijani hackers, whom we media experts have known for a long time, have become active after releasing data regarding patients with COVID-19. Now those hackers have released a large number of passport photos that are assumed to have been sent to a credit organization. Later, they started taking pictures of army documents and sending them, and it can be seen that those pictures were placed on something and taken,” Martirosyan said.
The media expert stated that the leaked information was sent from personal e-mail addresses. When asked what Armenians should do to make sure there is no such leakaeg, Martirosyan said there has to be a specific regulation for dissemination of information.
“There have to be very specific and serious punishments since they are causing serious damages to people. After that, people bearing information need to be educated. Basically, if this isn’t done in a coordinated manner, there will constantly be information leakage,” he said and stressed that this has been a problem for years.
