As a part of its ongoing operation against Israeli organizations, hacktivist group Anonymous Sudan has added the Israel Postal Company as its latest victim.
While the Israel Postal Company cyber attack is yet to be confirmed, the official website was accessible at the time of writing.
OpIsrael: Anonymous Sudan and hacker groups targeting Israel
The data, which was allegedly stolen from the servers of the Atid group, a college chain from Israel, included names, identity cards, addresses, military data, and more details of the students.
Responding to the data breach, the Atid group said, “Individuals from hostile countries attempted to carry out strategic attacks on the leading educational institutions in Israel….,” stated a Middle East Monitor report.
“We thwarted the attempt, and as far as we know, little information was leaked,” the group further added. Atid Group held Iranian hackers responsible for the cyber attacks they suffered that strategically targeted Israel’s academic institutions.
However, researchers are suspicious about it being an Iranian group.
In April, the Anonymous Sudan group also claimed cyber attacks on fifteen Israeli websites including the Israeli Broadcasting Authority (Kan).
Media reports about the cyberattack on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Facebook account also surfaced in April.
Israel, according to a report, suffered 18% lesser cyberattacks in 2022 in comparison with 2021. However, this year, their intelligence firm Mossad among others was left inaccessible with DDoS attacks by Anonymous Sudan.
Last month, Anonymous Sudan disrupted the website of Israel intelligence agency Mossad with a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack. Days before it, the threat group took down the websites of major Israeli media outlets including The Jerusalem Post.
About 31% of the cyber attacks in 2022 were launched by using phishing emails, social network was targeted in 26% of all attacks on Israel.
Anonymous Sudan Targets UAE
In the message addressed to the United Arab Emirates, the hacktivist group accused the UAE of normalizing its ties with the Zionist regime which the group called criminal.
“We will attack you because of your actions and harm you’ve brought upon the middle east especially Sudan. You have supported rapid support forces in all ways possible and have always been funding rebels in several countries in the middle east like Yemen, Libya, ” stated a video message by the group tweeted by Hacker News Ar.
The group concluded the message by threatening to target the UAE in the same manner as they targeted Israel. The hacktivist group expressed solidarity with Muslims and Arabs.
The Cyber Express has been reporting on the consistent attacks by Anonymous Sudan on Israel and India, both of which have recently established friendly relations with Russia. This makes it challenging to determine the group’s true intentions and identify any patterns in their attacks.
Detecting any patterns in their attacks and uncovering the true intentions of the group has become increasingly difficult.
Despite claiming to launch DDoS attacks on Swedish, Dutch, Australian, and German firms in retaliation for anti-Muslim activities, further investigation has revealed hidden connections that indicate a different motive.
Upon investigation, the Trustwave SpiderLabs research team has concluded that Anonymous Sudan is likely a sub-group of Killnet, a Pro-Russian threat actor group with whom they openly associate.
