Hacker group Cyb3r Drag0nz Team has officially declared a cyber war against the Moroccan government in response to the government’s establishment of a dedicated team tasked with identifying and prosecuting members of the hacker collective.
The group further asserts that it successfully breached the Ministry of National Education in Morocco.
Let’s examine the emerging hacker collective known as the Cyb3r Drag0nz Team, and delve into their methods for targeting high-profile individuals.
Cyb3r Drag0nz Launches Cyber Attack on the Moroccan Government
Cyb3r Drag0nz Team, a relatively new hacker group, has openly declared a cyber war against the Moroccan government.
The catalyst for this cyber attack on the Moroccan government is the government’s establishment of a specialized team tasked with tracking down and prosecuting members of the Cyb3r Drag0nz Team.
This escalation has led to a targeted cyber attack on the Moroccan government institutions, with the Ministry of National Education being one of their primary targets.
The Cyb3r Drag0nz Team has claimed to successfully breach the Ministry of National Education, compromising the personal information of hundreds of students. The group boldly announced this intrusion on their dark web channel, Cyb3r Dragonz.
However, the alleged cyber attack on the Moroccan government is yet to be verified.
Instances of Cyber Attack on the Moroccan government
Apart from the recent claim of a cyber attack on the Moroccan government, the country has not been immune to security incidents in the past.
In 2021, the General Directorate of Information Systems Security (DGSSI) reported detecting and thwarting 577 cybersecurity threats. Abdellatif Loudiyi, Minister Delegate of National Defense, emphasized the government’s commitment to fortifying its defenses against cyber threats.
The DGSSI has implemented rigorous preventative measures to safeguard its systems following each thwarted attack. This includes issuing 621 security bulletins in 2021, 188 of which addressed critical security concerns.
Additionally, the agency has developed innovative cryptographic tools to intercept coded attacks through fax and telephone communications.
Who is the Cyb3r Drag0nz Team?
Despite their audacious claims of a cyber attack on the Moroccan government, little is known about the Cyb3r Drag0nz hackers. However, operating through various social media profiles, the group regularly updates its claims of cyber attacks.
The Cyb3r Drag0nz Team has preferred targeting Islamic organizations and entities associated with Islamic countries.
Their recent victims include prominent institutions such as the Central/Official Technical University of Iraq, passport users in Turkey, and various entities in Palestine.
The group also posts screen recordings of their cyber attacks on social media channels, demonstrating their boldness.
As the conflict between the Cyb3r Drag0nz Team and the Moroccan government escalates, the security of sensitive information hangs in the balance.
The motives and methods of this enigmatic group remain shrouded in mystery.
The Cyber Express will continue to monitor their activities closely, providing updates as the situation develops.
