Anonymous hacker collective attacks on SL: Expert rings alarm bells

November 28, 2023

Experts are raising concerns about the Anonymous Hacker Collective's cyberattack on Sri Lanka, warning of potential repercussions. Cybersecurity Advisor Asela Waidyalankara highlights the fragility of Sri Lanka's e-Government system and the risk of personal data exposure, including medical and financial information. He advises updating passwords but notes that compromised data could be exploited for fraud or sold on the dark web. The full impact of the cyberattacks may only become clear in the future, and experts caution against seeking hacktivist intervention. Anonymous, known for cyberattacks on governments and institutions, has launched "#OpSriLanka" against the Sri Lankan government.
