June 16, 2023 /Security/ — Three hacker groups, Killnet, Anonymous Sudan, and REvil, have reportedly teamed up to launch a “world’s biggest cyber attack” on European banks. The groups have released a video warning of the attack, which they say will target SWIFT, the international payments system.
KillNet is a pro-Russian hacking group that has been active since 2022. The group has claimed responsibility for a number of cyberattacks, including attacks on Ukrainian government websites and infrastructure.
Anonymous Sudan is a pro-Sudan hacking group that has been active since 2021. The group has claimed responsibility for a number of cyberattacks, including attacks on Sudanese government websites and infrastructure.
REvil is a ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) group that has been active since 2019. The group has been responsible for a number of high-profile ransomware attacks, including attacks on JBS, Kaseya, and Colonial Pipeline.
The three groups have not released any specific details about the attack they are planning, but they have warned that it will be “the biggest cyber attack in history.” The groups have also threatened to target other European countries, including Germany, France, and Italy.
It is unclear how serious the threat is, but the European Union has warned its member states to be on alert for a potential cyberattack. The EU has also said that it is working with banks and other financial institutions to mitigate the risk of an attack.
The threat of a cyberattack on European banks is a serious one. If the attack is successful, it could have a significant impact on the European economy. Banks could be forced to close, and businesses could be unable to make payments. The attack could also lead to a loss of confidence in the European financial system.
The European Union is taking the threat seriously and is working to mitigate the risk of an attack. However, it is important to be aware of the risk and to take steps to protect yourself and your business. You can do this by:
- Keeping your software up to date
- Using strong passwords and two-factor authentication
- Being careful about what information you share online
- Being aware of phishing scams
If you think you have been the victim of a cyberattack, you should contact your bank or financial institution immediately. You should also report the attack to the authorities.
