The NII cyberattack
Anonymous Sudan claimed the DDoS attack on the National Insurance Institute (NII) and wrote, “Message to Israel, we do not want any mediation from you in Sudan….”
The National Insurance Institute based in Israel denied suffering a DDoS attack by Anonymous Sudan, and said, “They are trying to attack the site even now but have not succeeded,” news reports by the Times of Israel read.
“We took you down for an hour,” Anonymous Sudan posted on Telegram after targeting the National Insurance Institute (NII). They continued by claiming that they can bring the website down for longer, however, they were preparing for a big attack.
This statement was made by the cybercriminal group in response to reports about Israel offering to mediate the conflict in Sudan that led to over 420 deaths ever since the situation escalated on April 15.
