Files allegedly containing doping information on FIFA soccer players were leaked online by the Fancy Bears (also known as APT28, Pawn Storm, Sednit, Sofacy, Tsar Team and Strontium) hacking group, as part of an “OpOlympics” campaign.
The leaked emails contain information about soccer players using illegal substances or therapeutic use exemptions (TUEs). Apart from a short list of players allowed to use TUEs at the 2010 World Cup, there’s no mention of players actually using illegal substances.
“Today Fancy Bears’ hack team is publishing the material leaked from various sources related to football,” wrote the hacker group.
