Since January 23, a threat actor group identifying as “Anonymous Sudan” has been conducting denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks against several Swedish organizations and critical infrastructure under the tag #OpSweden.
Truesec’s Threat Intelligence unit has investigated the threat actor group to shed light on its activities and help identify its true motives. Although the threat actor behind the cyber attacks claims to be “Anonymous Sudan,” there are, however, several indications that the attacks are part of a Russian information operation to create fear and uncertainty in Sweden.
Truesec has released a new report (published Feb 20, 2023) that explains how the so-called "Anonymous Sudan" has nothing to do with the online activists collectively known as Anonymous. Instead, it was most likely created as part of a Russian information operation to harm and complicate Sweden’s NATO application.
