Play fell victim to hackers? Sudanese and Russian hackers boast about it

The first of them, on the Russian social networking site Telegram, boasted about the attack on the network belonging to the operator P4, attaching a chart from the NetBlocks.org website showing the drop in data transfer in Play.

The goal was to cause disruptions in P4 networks. “The attack was ideological in nature”

The hackers’ goal was to cause disruptions in P4 networks. The first wave of attacks took place on Wednesday evening. The next wave occurred on Thursday, and the data transfer speed in networks dropped to as low as 0.3 megabits per second.

Both groups of hackers are known for supporting Russia in the war with Ukraine and attacking targets favorable to the country defending itself against the attack. Cybercriminals claim they attacked Play to block remote repair of NATO equipment in Ukraine.

“The attack was ideological in nature. These groups attack NATO countries that side with Ukraine in the war with Russia. Additionally, Anonymous Sudan emphasize Poland’s pro-Israeli position in the conflict in the Middle East,” wrote Check Point Research experts quoted on the website.
