Anonymous Sudan claims DDoS attacks on Microsoft Outlook, warns ChatGPT it’s next
The attacks come in retaliation for the interference of US in Sudan’s internal affairs.
In an ongoing campaign against the USA, after claiming to have taken down Microsoft Outlook, hacktivist gang Anonymous Sudan has warned that ChatGPT will be their next victim.
On their encrypted Telegram channel, Anonymous Sudan has claimed to have launched a series of intermittent DDoS attacks against the Microsoft 365 information management platform since Monday, 5 June. One of the posts mentioned, ‘The Microsoft attack, now in its fourth round against Outlook, started up again Tuesday morning after Anonymous Sudan warned they would continue to “humiliate” the tech giant and “confirm to the world that you are a ‘S!#T’ company.’
With Microsoft attributing these services outages as ‘technical issues, ‘ the gang retaliated by posting ‘, In total, today, we have downed most of Microsoft services for 4.5 hours’. The gang is demanding a
$1 million dollar ransom from Microsoft to stop these attacks and threatened to sell the data of over 30 million Microsoft users.

So far, Microsoft has not commented on these incidents.
After a few hours, the gang posted a warning message to ChatGPT that they will be attacked later.
The gang had announced over the weekend that it would be launching an anti-US campaign in retaliation for the interference of US in Sudan’s internal affairs.
