Bulgarian IT specialist held over taxpayer data hack

AFP, Sofia

A 20-year-old Bulgarian cybercrime

specialist has been arrested over a hack and leak of a trove of taxpayer data, which

authorities had initially suspected was a Russia-linked cyberattack, an official said ysterday.

"The hack was carried out in Bulgaria, in Sofia, (allegedly) by a 20-year-old man," anti-cybercrime unit head Yavor Kolev told bTV television.

The man, whose job it was to test large systems' vulnerabilities to make sure they can withstand cyberattacks, was arrested at his workplace on Tuesday.

His work and home were also searched, Kolev said, adding investigations were still going on, including into whether the man had any accomplices.
