According to Sunday Times publication, the hackers breached Ramaphosa personal information from the financial loan he took out with one of the country’s top four banks in the 2000s.
SpinderLog hackers managed to crack President’s important personal information such as details of where he lives, his I.D and cell phone number and revealed them to the public.
