Microsoft admitted it was targeted in a cyber attack claimed by a Russian-linked group called Anonymous Sudan
The disruptions to Microsoft’s services earlier this month were indeed the result of hacks, the software giant has admitted.
In a blogpost Friday (June 16), the Redmond, Washington-based tech behemoth attributed the “surges in traffic against some services that temporarily impacted availability” to the “ongoing DDoS activity by the threat actor that Microsoft tracks as Storm-1359.”
While Microsoft gave the attackers a designate meant for groups whose affiliation it has not yet assigned, a hacktivist group called Anonymous Sudan has claimed responsibility for the hack on Telegram.
