KGB blames hackers for spreading devaluation rumors
The Committee for State Security (KGB) on Friday blamed foreign-based hackers for spreading rumors of the Belarusian rubel's fresh devaluation, BelaPAN said.
An image of a text message allegedly sent from an NBB phone was posted on the Facebook on Friday. The message said that NBB Chair Nadzeya Yermakova had ordered the rubel's devaluation from 8,630 to 14,340 against the dollar and from 11,270 to 18,116 against the euro.
In its statement, the KGB press office said that about a thousand people had received the text message. According to the KGB, the messages were sent out through an Indian-based server.
The KGB is working to identify the people involved in the hacker attack, the press office said.
The NBB dismissed the rumor as a provocation and "utter rubbish."
