To provide evidence of this, a screenshot of an SSH connection to the Oracle server has been posted. And also an explanation of what was done that this is retaliation against America, with the aim of destroying the infrastructure of the United States.

“We are aware of the statements made by hackers on anonymous forums, we are analyzing and actively studying their validity. At the moment we have no additional information to share. "

The cost of the register of confidential information was 6 bitcoins, which today is approximately $ 280,000.
