About our Vulkan Files news

Latest news on the Vulkan files, a leaked set of emails and other documents implicating the Russian company NTC Vulkan in acts of cybercrime, political interference in foreign affairs, censorship of domestic social media, and espionage, in collusion with Russia's security and intelligence agencies. The documents were leaked by a whistleblower who opposed Russia's war in Ukraine to a consortium of news organisations led by Paper Trail Media and Der Spiegel. The consortium published the first details of its investigation on 30 March 2023.

The documents reveal how Vulkan's engineers have worked for Russian military and intelligence agencies to support hacking operations, train operatives before attacks on national infrastructure, spread disinformation and control sections of the internet. The company's work is linked to the notorious hacking group Sandworm, which was responsible for several destructive cyberattacks around the world. The documents also show how Vulkan's software combs internet networks for targets and intrusion points, and how it enables social media manipulation via fake profiles.
