JAKARTADAILY.ID – The Coordinating Minister for Politics, Law, and Security Mahfud MD, downplayed the impact of the hacker by the name of Bjorka, and went on to say that he is "just a storyteller."

Bjorka recently stirred the Indonesian cyberspace after allegedly leaking several databases containing private information of Indonesian citizens, and leaking personal information on government officials. 


"(Hacker) Bjorka is nothing. What data has been leaked until today, I ask? What is the state data that has been leaked? Nothing, it just keeps on spreading," said Mahfud to reporters in Surabaya, Wednesday, September 21, 2022.

According to Mahfud, so far no state data has been leaked as claimed by Bjorka. Including the personal data of state officials distributed by Bjorka, saying the data was "incorrect."

"That (personal data of state officials distributed by Bjorka) was made by himself and continued to be distributed as if it were true. The data is also wrong. Try to distribute my data, and write down the name of Siti Aminah's mother. My mother's name is not Siti Aminah, meaning he made it up," he said.

However, in a previous report, Minister of SOEs Erick Thohir said the data that was leaked about him containing his home address and phone number, was available to the public anyway, inadvertently confirming that the of him was indeed correct.
