Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Because any "low level phishing attack", such as those aimed at your average bank account, would end up with a 9 GB dump of documents on Pastebin? And the same "low level" phishers would of course activate recently created Twitter bots to spread the topic all over the place? (h/t Mediapart). At this point, even the presence of Cyrillic meta data among some of the "leaked" documents seems almost anecdotal (many criminal operations at the source of phishing attacks are based in eastern Europe, so it doesn't prove anything).

There are a few intelligence operations in the world with technological capacities way above your average hacker: according to B.Schneier, the Russian side seems to have taken the lead.
