Last month dozens of top secret files where leaked to discord severs, the controversial message board 4Chan, Telegram – an encrypted messaging app and Twitter.
The documents have sensitive information ranges from Ukrainian and Russian casualties rates, current Iranian nuclear activity, North Korean missile capability and China’s possible reaction to a Ukrainian attack within Russia. The leak also exposed which allies the US was eavesdropping on.
Russian media has capitalised on the leak to try and drive a wedge between the US and its allies but other than a formal complaint from two countries the Five Eyes intelligence organisations strategic ties remain strong.
The United States is still unsure who leaked the information and how they acquired it.
