Legion member+ told Factordaily.com, a tech news website, over an encrypted chat interview.

In another interview, with Washington Post, the hacker group claimed that they had access to servers like that of Apollo Hospitals and it was unsure about releasing data from those servers because it might cause “chaos” in India.
 The report quoted the user marked LC from ‘Legion Crew’ as saying:“Legion wasn’t even interested in political data until a few weeks ago. ...the group was in possession of several terabytes of raw data concerning all sorts of interests and that within that trove the hackers had identified gigabytes worth of information relating to Indian public figures.”


Max Bearak, who writes about foreign affairs for the Washington Post, said: “When I asked him how they came into possession of so much data, he was vague and said they just ended up with access to over 40k+ servers in India, and we decided -- hey, why not write a tool to sift through them for interesting data.”



In another conversation with Economic Times,  Legion said the Indian banking system is "deeply flawed" and has been hacked several times. According to the report, Legion even revealed the financial institutions that have been hacked by them but ET refrained from publishing their names.

Legion has reportedly been pulling off hacks for ten years and have also been wanted by multiple international agencies.
