06/04/2023 - Vulcan Files online available. That are the russian capabilities?

The leaked Vulcan Papers are out now.[1]

This looks like a joke. On Scan V4 (page 15) you see an "encryption" method.
Instead of using good crypto libs, they rather use XOR.
Is that, what you get, when everyone with a bit of knowledge fell of a window?

To be honest. I don't fear people who have no real capabilities. Everything looks like a bunch of script kiddies who had bought a few Zerodays.

Let's see:

        public static void xorFile(@Nonnull File file, @Nonnull String dest, @Nonnull byte[] password) throws IOException
            FileInputStream is = new FileInputStream(file);
            FileOutputStream os = new FileOutputStream(dest);
            byte[] data = new byte[4096];

            int read =, index = 0;
            while (read != -1) {
                for (int k = 0; k < read; k++) {
                    data[k] ^= password[index % password.length];
                os.write(data, 0, read);
                read =;

The code quality is not state-of-the-art.
Furthermore - this piece of code doesn't make sense to me. Why they are reading only 4096 byte per line? The rest will be truncated? So if it,s a one-liner they store rubbish at last. And the iteration is very outdated. It looks like someone copied it from Since JAVA 1.8 nobody would do that.

To be honest - there is no reason to fear those people.
