Geo-Poli-Cyber™ Warfare | UK Suffers a Major Hack “in Response to US & UK Airstrikes on Yemen”. | Survivability News Hacking the Unhackables Series.
With reprisals and escalation were expected to follow after the US and UK air strikes on Yemen, a statement on messaging platform Telegram, came from the ‘Anonymous Sudan’ hacking group with a warning saying: “Big attack on UK soon, in response to the air attacks in Yemen and unconditional support of the genocidal Zionist regime in Israel.”
Less than an hour later they claimed to have attacked the London Internet Exchange (LINX).
LINX, is a firm that has offices in London and Peterborough, is one of the world’s largest internet exchange points.
It works by enhancing the speed and reliability of internet providers and allowing direct interconnection between different networks.
Anonymous Sudan said their attack hit LINX’s routing infrastructure which they claimed rendered some services “unreachable”.
Their attack came as the US and UK conducted airstrikes against Houthi military targets in nearly 30 locations across Yemen on Thursday.
