FGE hack likely by former imprisoned businessman

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — Quintana Roo FGE head Óscar Montes de Oca says their recent hack was via a former state businessman who was recently released from prison. In an interview with Radio Formula, Montes de Oca said the man was able to bribe disloyal public servants inside the FGE to leak the information.

The Attorney General of the State (FGE) of Quintana Roo, Óscar Montes de Oca, said that Carlos “M”, a former area businessman who was jailed for extortion in 2020, actually claims to be behind the attack.

He explained that a few days ago, Carlos “M” released a video acknowledging that he infiltrated public servants and offered reward money for videos of specific law enforcement personnel, one of whom, was Montes de Oca.

The FGE head said they are moving forward with their investigation and “already have an institutional strategy.”

Carlos “M”, the man believed behind the cyber attack, was arrested in the state of Yucatan in 2020 and eventually jailed on extortion charges. He spent 23 months in Chetumal prison before being released to house arrest in October of 2022.
