Russia: media points to the flaws in the Defense Ministry’s website
In Russia, a controversy has arisen for several days between an online information site and the Russian Defense Ministry.
From our correspondent in Moscow,
The online information sitediscovered a rather disturbing anomaly on the official page of the Russian Ministry of Defense, an anomaly which allows everyone to consult personal data on Russian soldiers, including those stationed abroad. According to the site, it is sufficient to use the soldier's name and number to access information such as the rank, pay, and duties of the member. All of this can be found on a page that has been set up by the military for the soldiers themselves so that they can easily access this data. The problem is that the protection of the site has obviously been very poorly thought out and it is all the more annoying than this information which if it falls into ill-intentioned hands can prove to be very compromising.
Roman Fillipov, Su-25 pilot shot down in Syria
So at the origin of all this case, there is al, whose plane crashed the week the last in Syria, Roman Fillipov, who has been talked about a lot here in Russia since his death. The soldier committed suicide by detonating a grenade, to avoid being captured after the plane crash. A few days after his death, the Fontanka site realized that by entering the pilot's name and registration number, it was possible to access all kinds of information, including his monthly pay. The news site exposed all of this by accusing the Defense Ministry of endangering its own soldiers. “Because this information can be very compromising for a soldier who is taken prisoner.
The Ministry of Defense denounces a lack of journalistic ethics
These accusations were not appreciated at all by the Ministry of Defense. Indeed, the ministry reacted very quickly with a press release on vitriol, a press release published on Facebook. The Fontaka site has "exceeded the limits of the acceptable," we can read in this press release, "including the limits of basic decency and journalistic ethics. The site responded by claiming that at no time did it reveal the data concerning the soldier who died in Syria and that the publication of his investigation had only one objective: to uncover the security breaches on the ministry's website , and the danger that these flaws could represent for Russian soldiers. "We are not hackers, we are only journalists," concludes the site, calling on the ministry to close the offending page.
