Robin Hood Hacker Steals Russian Crypto Funds Donates to Ukraines Poor

A Robin Hood hacker has recently stolen Russian cryptocurrency funds and donated them to Ukraine’s poor, according to CoinDesk. The hacker accessed hundreds of cryptocurrency wallets that belonged to Russia’s intelligence agencies, including the FSB, GRU, and Foreign Intelligence Service, and transferred the stolen bitcoins to Ukrainian volunteers. The hacker used blockchain and bitcoin technologies to his advantage, gaining access to the crypto wallets through an as yet unknown feature. Analysts believe the hacker may have infiltrated Russian intelligence services to access the wallets. The first hacks occurred just before Russia invaded Ukraine in February of this year. The hacker initially intended to destroy the stolen funds, but ultimately donated them to Ukraine’s impoverished population.
