Turkish hackers promise to launch anti-danmark like cyberattack against Belgium
As a response to the arrests following the Turkish riots in Brussels Turkish hackers have began with what they call a massive cyberattack on Belgian infrastructure and websites. They promise to do damage.
Those who read this blog know that they have been warned for this last week and should have taken the appropriate actions.
First I you don't need any traffic FROM turkey, you just block all traffic coming from Turkye at your firewall (or if the number of visits isn't worth the trouble, for example if you have on your e-commerce site 50 visits a month and 40 are attacks, you just block them, ain't worth the money).
Secondly all your machines and sites should be patched (also the applications) and should have an antivirus and firewall. You should have a clean backup from your website-applications in standby (hot and cold) and you should monitor all changes to your website (especially changing pages like frontpage and forums or adding pages).
YOU SHOULD TAKE THESE GUYS SERIOUSLY
THEY HAVE ALREADY COMPROMISED
- a subsite of Wallonie.be
- a subsite of the organisation of cities
- probably even the sncb
we will try to follow the situation as it develops but do not forget : the belgian government has no central coordination center against that kind of attacks as this government refused to install it even if it was written in the New Telecom Law. You (and your contractors and ISP's) are on your own, except if you guys coordinate a bit between yourselfs.
It can be bluff, but it can just be the beginning of a storm. Just as with a storm, prepare yourself.
