Earlier this morning I came across a massive leak effecting the Government of Nepal, only it was originally posted online January 31st 2019. The hacks and leaks themselves were claimed by a hacker known as “Tryliom,” apparently an Albanian hacker part of a much larger group of international hackers going by the name of “The Official Unknowns.” Outside of that, not much is known about Tryliom or his group, nor what their purpose/intent is or what they are known for. In fact, the leak of the Government of Nepal is only the second such posting to Twitter Tryliom has posted online in almost 3 years.
Given that the information is about a month and half old at this point, there’s no telling how outdated and/or relevant all of it still is. That being said however, included in the leaked data are the login credentials, admin username, email and passwords necessary to access various databases affiliated with 30 Government agencies across Nepal. For the purposes of this article I am not going to name of all 30 offices, but they each fall under 3 main branches; the Government of Nepal (Gov.Np), National Information Center (NIC) and National Information Technology Center (NITC). To serve as proof that the login credentials are still or were at one point valid, Tryliom also released the titles of the databases you can access via the credentials provided.
In a message attached to the leaks, Tryliom stated:
