French Football Federation (FFF) Allegedly Hacked | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker | #hacking | #aihp

The Fédération Française de Football (FFF) has been informed of allegations regarding a potential security breach within their systems.

The French Football Federation (FFF) is the governing body of football in France. It oversees the operations and organization of French football leagues and national teams. The FFF supports players, clubs, and volunteers nationwide and is committed to promoting the sport at all levels.

Recent reports have surfaced on a hacking forum claiming the sale of a database purportedly containing over 10 million records associated with French football, including those of non-professional and professional players.

According to the HackManac X feed, “Assuming the breach is real, one hypothesis is the database spans several years, or the 10 million refers to the number of records, not people.”

Upon learning of these allegations, the FFF immediately initiated a comprehensive investigation to ascertain the veracity of these claims.

Preliminary Findings

The figures mentioned by the alleged threat actor differ significantly from our official records, which currently list 2.22 million registered members, 1.87 million players, and 400,000 volunteers across 14,000 amateur clubs.

Initial analysis of the sample data suggests the information may be legitimate. The sample includes detailed 2023 data on a specific player, encompassing personal details such as last name, first name, date of birth, phone number, and email address, among other sensitive information.

While the exact source of the alleged data remains unclear, whether it stems from a direct breach of the FFF’s systems or has been scraped from other sources, we are conducting thorough security checks and enhancing our cybersecurity measures to prevent any potential future incidents.

We urge caution regarding claims of this nature, as they often prove unfounded. The FFF is dedicated to transparency and will provide updates as our investigation progresses. We are working closely with cybersecurity experts and law enforcement agencies to resolve this matter. HackManac said.
