Italy tells organisations to brace for DDoS attacks
Italy’s Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) issued an urgent alert on Monday, warning organisations of the significant risk of cyberattack against national entities.
The Italian organisation is referring to DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attacks which, while not necessarily catastrophic, can cause significant damage due to service outages and disruptions.
“There continue to be signs and threats of possible imminent attacks against, in particular, national public entities, private entities providing a public utility service or private entities whose image is identified with the country of Italy,” explains the public alert.
The alarm bell was raised after posts were discovered on the Killnet group’s Telegram channel that incited “massive and unprecedented” attacks against Italy.
