Large Scale DDoS Attacks at Italian Airports

November 23, 2023

INCIDENT

Mysterious team Bangladesh , a criminal hacker group that has attracted attention in the past for attacks especially against Indian and Israeli sites, targeted three Italian airports: those of Valle d'Aosta, Calabria and Puglia .

The attacks are of the DDoS (Distributed denial of service) type and have caused slowdowns on the sites. The Italian Cybersecurity Agency, as far as we know, has alerted the subjects potentially affected by the offensive: airports and, more generally, providers of essential services.

“Aeroporti di Puglia communicates that the analyzes carried out did not reveal any compromises to the functioning of the web services which are still regularly online”. Nor was there any damage to the computer systems of the various airports, so everything is proceeding regularly both in Bari Palese, Foggia and Brindisi.

Since the beginning of the Hamas-Israel crisis, there is also an increase in activity on the web, with the participation - among others - of hacktivists such as those of the Mysterious team Bangladesh appear to be: groups who carry forward a political message with their actions.
