Scandinavian Airlines has been demanded to pay $3 million by the Anonymous Sudan threat operation to put an end to distributed denial-of-service attacks against the airline's websites that began in February, reports The Record, a news site by cybersecurity firm Recorded Future.
Anonymous Sudan has claimed in a ransom note issued on its Telegram channel on May 29 that it has disrupted SAS and its services for over five days at that point.
"We will keep punishing you and your company non-stop as we have been doing for the past 120 hours. It will end badly for you and we won't be harmed," said Anonymous Sudan.
SAS has been attacked by Anonymous Sudan since the February as retribution for the burning of a Quran during the Stockholm protests in January, with the operation proceeding with intrusions against Swedens national public television broadcaster, Denmark's hospitals, and Germany's airports, but Truesec noted that the operation was not part of the Anonymous hacktivist group and is most likely included in a Russian information operation aimed at thwarting Sweden's application for NATO membership.
