The NET-WORKER ALLIANCE, a relatively obscure threat actor, has taken credit for a data breach on INTERPOL’s Remote Access portal. This assertion was made via the group’s secretive dark web channel, accompanied by a screenshot of the compromised portal and a check-host link as evidence.
NET-WORKER ALLIANCE is not new to the world of cyberattacks, having previously claimed responsibility for targeting critical institutions in Poland, including the Warsaw Stock Exchange, Warsaw Chopin Airport, PGZ Stocznia Wojenna, and Port of Gdynia Authority S.A.
However, the group’s true intentions behind these attacks have remained a mystery, making it challenging to discern their motivations. In a parallel development, NET-WORKER ALLIANCE has also asserted its involvement in an attack on Europol’s website, raising concerns about the extent of their cyber activities and their potential impact on international law enforcement agencies.
This latest claim by NET-WORKER ALLIANCE underscores the persistent threat posed by cybercriminals and the need for organizations like INTERPOL to remain vigilant and fortified against such attacks.
The group’s ability to breach a system as sensitive as INTERPOL’s Remote Access portal highlights the evolving sophistication of cyber threats in today’s digital landscape.
