For your information, since June 20, attacks have been carried out on the PDNS 2 system due to the Lockbit 3.0 ransomware attack. This attack blocks important data in the system. As a result, most of the data is blocked and inaccessible in the data centers used by 282 state and regional central agencies.

A decryption key is required to open the locked data. The government then claimed that the criminals paid $8 million, or around Rp131.8 billion, to provide the decryption key. However, the Ministry of Communications and Information (Cominfo) stressed that they will not accede to this request.

Then, the hacking group that claimed responsibility for the cyberattack on the Provisional National Data Center, or PDNS 2, known as Brain Cipher, eventually returned the data by providing a link to the decryption key.

This link is said to be able to unlock data locked due to a ransomware attack by this group. However, they still pose additional threats.

In a post on the X account (formerly Twitter) belonging to @stealthmole_int, Singapore-based cybersecurity firm StealthMole, Brain Cipher said they are waiting for confirmation that the key link can work and successfully recover data.

“We are waiting for the second party to officially confirm that the keys are working and the data has been recovered; only then will we permanently delete the data,” the hacker wrote in English on Thursday, July 4, 2024.
