Hacker News is reporting that some of the world’s biggest ISPs have been targeted with malware that has been designed to target their systems.
Hacker News says the attack is being carried out by a group known as “The Lizard Squad.”
The news site says the group was responsible for the “largest and most widespread” attack on the world-wide ISPs this year.
The group reportedly obtained personal information, including email addresses, email passwords, and credit card information.
Hacker has no way of confirming the authenticity of the attack, but it is thought to be a result of a massive, well-coordinated attack that affected at least 30 of the top Internet providers in the world.
Hacker reports that the Lizard Squad targeted all of the major Internet service providers in several countries, including France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
“The biggest ISP in the US, Comcast, was hit with a crippling ransomware attack,” the news site writes.
“This attack was a response to the FCC’s announcement of net neutrality.
The attack affected all ISPs, and some companies took measures to mitigate the damage.
This attack also included a series of ransomware attacks against the US government and major corporations.”
The malware is designed to infect computers, allowing the attackers to access their files and websites, steal their data, and install other malware.
It’s unclear if the attacks are being carried over to the United States.
Hackers claim to have been able to take control of the network of ISPs affected by the attack and use the malware to steal data and sell it on the dark web.
Hacktivist group Anonymous is also reported to have used the malware against AT&T, Verizon, Comcast and others.
AT&F, which is the nation’s largest provider of internet service, says that the attack has affected its network.
“As a precaution, AT&G will soon take steps to limit the exposure of your data, including disabling access to the AT&S cloud services,” a spokesperson told Ars.
The spokesperson declined to elaborate.
