"Neo", a hacker believed to be based in Britain, is part of a group called the Fourth Awakening People´s Army. Over a period of three months the hacker group downloaded private financial data of up to 1,000 companies in Latvia.
"Neo" is now tweeting the group´s findings to state-owned Latvian TV, and has many people riveted, waiting for his next tweet. Ilze Nagla, a TV presenter for the station, said a lot of people perceive him as a modern-day Robin Hood.
The tweets include pay details of managers for a Latvian bank that received a bail-out, and promised to take a salary cut but in fact did not. Another shows state-owned companies secretly awarded bonuses while publicly asking the government for help.
