New DDoS attack on Microsoft 365 services

Microsoft recently suffered massive DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks that led to large-scale outages in Microsoft 365 services such as Outlook, Teams and OneDrive.

After it was able to resolve the issues and looked into the matter more closely, the company said that the attackers were targeting Layer 7 or L7 (Application layer) of OSI, and assured that no customer data was compromised.killnet

Beginning in early June 2023, Microsoft experienced spikes in traffic to some services that temporarily affected their availability. Microsoft immediately launched an investigation and began monitoring ongoing DDoS activity from a hacking group that Microsoft refers to as Storm-1359.

These attacks likely use access to multiple virtual private servers (VPS), rented cloud infrastructure, open proxies, and DDoS tools.

Μετά από μερικές εβδομάδες, οι υπηρεσίες του Microsoft 365 δέχτηκαν ξανά επίθεση σήμερα, αν και το πρόβλημα επιλύθηκε μέσα σε λίγες ώρες. Οι λεπτομέρειες του προβλήματος μπορούν να παρακολουθηθούν με το αναγνωριστικό MO597504 στο διαχείρισης του Microsoft 365.

According to the official Microsoft 365 Twitter account, today's attack only affected users in Western Europe.


Later today the company confirmed that the issues had been resolved after an extended monitoring period.

It remains to be seen if what the company says will last, or to put it another way, if the hackers also agree. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
