Anonymous Sudan has resurfaced again and claimed a new Twitter data breach. The security incident was announced via a Telegram post stating that they had launched the attack because Twitter CEO Elon Musk did not meet their demands. 
In a meticulously coordinated effort, the hackers claimed to take down Twitter’s application, website, and internal system, rendering the platform completely inaccessible.
However, at the time of writing, the micro-blogging platform was operational and showed no signs of the alleged Twitter data breach.
Interestingly, this is not Anonymous Sudan’s first strike with such precision. The group had previously claimed a similar Twitter data breach in August, 2023, causing widespread disruption. 
Twitter data breach claims, yet again

The Twitter data breach remains unverified, given the normal functioning of both the Twitter application and website. Anonymous Sudan executed this cyber attack with the primary objective of urging the expansion of Elon Musk’s Starlink internet service into Sudan.
Using the attacks, the group is directing a message to Musk, urging him to consider bringing Starlink to the region.
Starlink, a revolutionary satellite-based internet project under Elon Musk’s SpaceX, aims to bridge the digital divide by providing high-speed, low-latency internet connectivity to underserved areas around the world.

In April 2023, the group launched a similar Twitter data breach, demanding that Elon Musk, the co-founder of Twitter, Tesla, The Boring Company, and SpaceX, bring the Starlink services in Sudan.
However, the plea falls short as Sudan still faces an internet shortage, and less than 50% of the population has access to the internet. 
Currently, Sudan is among the regions with the lowest internet penetration rates worldwide. Meaning only one in five people have access to the internet and online services. 
Anonymous Sudan claimed multiple attacks prior to Twitter data breach
Anonymous Sudan’s modus operandi involves leveraging vulnerabilities in digital systems to achieve their objectives. The hackers, communicating in Arabic, have claimed to be avenging perceived injustices in Sudan and other parts of the Muslim world.
However, suspicions have arisen that the group might be a front for Russian hackers, as its actions often align with the interests of Russia and Islamic nations.
In a separate incident, Anonymous Sudan had set its sights on Microsoft earlier, boasting access to a purported 30 million Microsoft accounts they offered for sale on a Telegram bot for a staggering $50,000. Microsoft swiftly dismissed the claims, categorically denying any data breach. 
The hackers had released a limited subset of the alleged database, containing around 100 email and password combinations, as a form of proof. However, Microsoft’s meticulous analysis indicated no evidence of unauthorized access or compromise of customer data.
Despite the denial, the collective’s actions have sparked concerns. Anonymous Sudan recently targeted the website of Scandinavian Airlines and managed to disrupt Microsoft’s 365 software suite, including high-profile services like Outlook and Teams. This string of incidents raises questions about the extent of the collective’s capabilities and motives.
