Anonymous Sudan, a threat actor group, has been identified as the malicious entity behind several notable Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. A threat actor can be an individual, a private company, or part of a government entity that executes actions with malicious intent. Anonymous Sudan's activities have been characterized by high-profile attacks, causing significant disruption to various online platforms and services. The group first gained notoriety after launching a successful DDoS attack against Telegram, a widely used messaging app. This attack was reported on securityaffairs.com, which provided in-depth coverage of the incident. The attack caused substantial service interruptions for Telegram users, highlighting the potency of Anonymous Sudan's capabilities and their willingness to target popular communication platforms. Subsequent to their attack on Telegram, Anonymous Sudan escalated their activities by targeting Cloudflare, a major web infrastructure and website security company. Taking down the Cloudflare website marked a significant escalation in their operations, given Cloudflare's prominence in providing DDoS protection services. This series of attacks underscores the serious threat posed by Anonymous Sudan, necessitating robust cybersecurity measures to counter their actions.
