Poland has fallen victim to yet another cyber attack, this time perpetrated by a threat group known as the “Net Worker Alliance”.
The group has claimed responsibility for the cyber attack on Poland targeting some of the country’s major websites, including the Warsaw Stock Exchange (GPW), Warsaw Chopin Airport (WAW), PGZ Stocznia Wojenna, and Port of Gdynia Authority S.A.
Net Worker Alliance hacker group has asserted its involvement in the cyber attack on Poland, listing the high-profile websites it allegedly targeted. The Warsaw Stock Exchange, a crucial institution in Poland’s financial landscape, was under the group’s digital crosshairs.
Net Worker Alliance hacker group claims cyber attack on Poland
Similarly, the Warsaw Chopin Airport, an important travel hub, was targeted. Significant maritime organizations like PGZ Stocznia Wojenna and Port of Gdynia Authority S.A. were also affected.
The reasons behind this cyber attack on Poland remain murky as the Net Worker Alliance hacker group’s true intentions are unknown.
To know more about the cyber attack on Poland, The Cyber Express reached out to the affected parties, namely Warsaw Chopin Airport (WAW) and Port of Gdynia Authority S.A.
Regrettably, as of the time of writing, an official response had not been received, which left the claims put forth by Net Worker Alliance unverified.
Who is the Net Worker Alliance hacker group?
With this audacious cyber attack on Poland, the Net Worker Alliance hacker group, a Pro-Russian hacker collective whose motivations and origins remain elusive, has drawn attention to itself.
While limited information about the group’s activities is available, it has been associated with several attacks, adding to its enigmatic profile.
One of its more recent actions involved the U.K. Hydrographic Office, where the group claimed to have compromised the institution’s server through “social engineering.”
In one particular attack, the Net Worker Alliance hacker group declared responsibility for launching Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks against the Charles de Gaulle airport’s website on two separate occasions.
However, a closer look at this attack revealed that the group had mistakenly targeted a fan site rather than the official airport website.
The cyber attack on Poland by the Net Worker Alliance hacker group still needs some confirmation because the threat actor previously mistook another website as the victim, leaving speculation about the authenticity of its attack claims.
The Cyber Express previously reported about Pro-Russian hackers forming an alliance, including other hacker groups: TeslaBotnet, NetSide, Indian Cyber Force, Black Dragon Sec, ETUnit, Loyd Xelliship, BLOODNET, and NET-WORKER.
The alliance was believed to be formed to target NATO and bring “Glory to Russia!” as shared by other Pro-Russian hacker groups.
This particular attack on Poland, however, is an ongoing story, and we’ll update this post once we have more information or any official confirmation from the affected parties.
