Deutsche Telecom, a German telecommunications company, was hit by cyber attacks in 2016. A British man has claimed responsibility for running a cyber attack on a customer base in Liberia.
The 29-year-old hacker, who did not reveal the name of the cyber attack, attacked nine lakh routers. His goal was to take control of the router.
Earlier this year, the man was detained from Lootun Airport in London. In the court, he described this attack as “the worst mistake of his life”. A telecommunications company in Laurent wanted to run a Botanet attack in the competing institution. He said that the hacker was given 7700 pounds for the attack.
Deutsche Telecom claims that their losses amount to 1.7 million pounds due to the attack. The company has disconnected the router connection, after a software update, the company advised it to be restarted. Then the problem is said to have ended.
This hacker is expected to be prosecuted on July 28th. He can face imprisonment for 10 years in Germany.
In a recent report, German IT company Bitcom said that in the last two years, more than half of Germany’s companies have been subjected to security breaches in espionage, data betting and cyber attacks. The company, which has damaged $ 55 billion in annual damages, said.
In a statement on Friday, German cyber company BSI President Aron Schwenbum said, “With so many organizations damaged, it is clear that we still have a lot to do in cyber security in Germany.”
