In statements to journalists, the high-ranking official revealed that this overwhelming number of people had access to the SAT systems, and in order to cut this failure of third party access to the data, they are spending more money on technology.

She explained that they found three cables coming out of the SAT servers directly to non-governmental institutions, that is to say, the theft was not through the use of the well-known USB or a tax advisor who is there in the office, but through those three cables connected in the servers.

She explained that at that time 35,000 user ports were found that had access to all SAT information and that it was not known who they were, they were under pseudonyms “patito1, patito2, sinvergüenza2”, Buenrostro ironized.

Most of the agency’s technologies were contracted with suppliers.

The data was also exposed to 250 people in federal agencies, to the Mexican Social Security Institute, to the National Workers’ Housing Fund Institute and from time to time, many years ago, also to the National Electoral Institute; so the information leak has several fronts.

“The information was held by a lot of people that we don’t even know who they are. At least 40,000 people, who knows who they are, who they work for. Some we have identified, some we don’t. So who has the information on the information? So, who has the SAT information? So far almost 40,000 people, but surely they are not the only ones,” she said.
