Essentially, the release of Federal Bureau of Investigation data was meant to show how serious they are - as well as to attract the attention of future buyers.

Authorities were investigating on Saturday the online posting by a hacker group of the personal information of hundreds of federal agents and police officers apparently stolen from websites affiliated with alumni of the FBI's National Academy.

Perhaps most importantly or interestingly, the hackers claim that the hack/leak of the Federal Bureau of Investigation was nothing more than a publicity stunt, so to speak, because they are actually in possession of much more interesting/valuable information that they'll begin selling as soon as their website is complete.

The group's executive director, Howard Cook, said it was looking into whether sites were breached. The hacker shared that the group is sorting out the data to be sold later, but have already published bits of it as a teaser to show they had something "interesting" on their hands.

"The officers of the situation center of SBU cyber security prevented an attempt of the hacker group controlled by the Russian special forces to carry out a preparatory phase of a cyber attack aimed at popular media and telecommunication facilities of Ukraine", the message reads. One of them led to a subdomain belonging to Taiwan-based electronics manufacturing giant Foxconn.

The hacker admitted the breach could "probably" put law enforcement officials at risk. The media claimed the hack occurred despite the German intelligence services efforts and that they tracked it to the Turla hacking group, allegedly tied to Russian Federation.
