Amid the ongoing Israel-Palestine conflict, the pro-Israeli hacker collective ‘The Red Evil’ has issued a threat aimed at Lebanon, specifically targeting the AI-based systems used by Lebanese paramilitary forces.
The message was posted on their dark web channel, suggesting an impending cyber threat. The Red Evil hacker groups claim that they can dismantle even advanced military systems reliant on artificial intelligence.
Red Evil Hacker Group: Warning for Upcoming Cyberattacks
According to their Telegram channel, the hacker groups claim that they are “watching you closely and we are deep in your systems.”
With claims such as, “Lebanon will find itself in a very difficult war”, they are directly asserting that they will target Lebanon and they have all the tools and arsenal they need to target the country.
“We are at a strategic and strong point that allows us to destroy your systems at any given moment, including sophisticated and advanced military systems that are based on artificial Intelligence”, reads The Red Evil hacker group post.
Moreover, just days ago, the pro-Israeli hacker group targeted Iran for a second time, contributing to this ongoing cyber war between Israel and Palestine.
With a pro-Israeli agenda, the Red Evil hacker group asserted responsibility for successfully infiltrating companies involved in the construction and development of nuclear facilities linked to Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.
The Red Evil Hacker Group Enters the Cyberwar
Over 100’s of prominent hacker groups have already joined in this Israel-Palestine conflict with many pro-Israeli and pro-Palestine groups taking sides. In this conflict, the Telegram channel of the Red Evil hacker group revealed the extent of their breach.
Since this cyber war is fueled by Patriotism and war against the other groups, the Red Evil group has not explicitly communicated whether a ransom was indeed demanded, adding an air of uncertainty to their motives.
This is not the first time The Red Evil group has targeted Iran. They were previously implicated in an attack on Iran’s electricity infrastructure, resulting in widespread power outages, particularly in Tehran.
The consequences were far-reaching, leading to the suspension of subway services in the capital, exacerbating traffic congestion, and impeding the efforts of rescue teams.
