June 9, 2023 – Over the last week, Microsoft has been experiencing many outages around Outlook.com, OneDrvie and now Azure.
The attacks seem to be coming from a hacker group called Anonymous Sudan and is reported to be retaliation due to US involvement in Sudan. However, there is speculation that another country is involved. It is possible that Russia is involved and could be masking the attacks under Sudan.
What can you do? – Well at this point, not much can be done. Since O365, Azure, Outlook.com are all hosted services on Microsoft’s platform, it’s their responsibility to keep these types of attacks from happening.
The best thing you can do is have a plan for outages to O365 and any other vendor web-hosted platform.
