Cyber 71 is a reputed cyber security institute in Bangladesh which hosts DIDS attack every day in a group of about 90,000 members. It is a very good initiative, they are fighting against the enemy by empowering the common people. Trying to. But how much is being gained or how much is being lost?
First of all, let's talk about the success of their recent Achievement in attacking Deeds on the site charliehebdo.fr. If we check the DNS Record of the site charliehebdo.fr then we will see that the site has IP addresses 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 whose info if checked "org": "AS13335 Cloudflare, Inc." And CloudFlare is the largest DIDs protection system in the world. It has an attack bypass capacity of up to 42 terabytes. In other words, to download CloudFlare, you have to send more than 42 terabytes per second, which is impossible from Bangladesh.
So is it wrong that Cyber 71 and all the group members attacked Deeds last night?
No! The Deeds attack was okay but it went over the Cloudflare server, meaning the attack didn't go to the edge of the main server. See attached screenshot about DDoS Protection.
So this time let's see how much damage has been done by the attack?
I would say the damage has been done but not to those who were attacked, but to those who did. Listen to how this time,
The first condition for hackers to hack is to ensure their own protection. That is, to ensure protection for oneself so that the target does not know where the attack is being carried out or who the attacker is. But if you watch the training video given to them, you will see that they did not show anything to ensure their safety.
So all the group members are attacking the DIDs but they are already logged in to the server and they get enough information to know where the attack is being carried out or who the attacker is. Now if they hand over this information data to the National or International Cyber Crime Agency, then that information will be red marked internationally. Now many of the many DDoS members would be real IP users, so it would not be a difficult task for any security agency to get their info with their IP and there was an abuse report in the name of that person.
What will happen to me now? Will they come to Bangladesh to catch that person?
No! They will just leave your info at the Abuse mark. Now today you did DDoS and you thought you would do something in the future along this line. So suppose you applied for a job in an international company. For example:
When you apply to this platform, they follow a process called Background Check. They will give your info to some security agency to check your background and then your abuse report will come up and you will lose the opportunity to do the job even if you are eligible for the job. So this time who will take the responsibility? The general public is just following the post given in the group
Now let's talk about their so-called achievement. How can this be a success if the site has blocked access to the attacking regions for their attack? The story is that you close your eyes and think that you can't see, that means everyone else can't see. Now a question to the public!
Have you ever seen a hacker claim to be a hacker by killing Facebook ad boost? Now Cyber-71 is a boat going in the opposite direction. No other hacking team in Bangladesh has any similarity / friendship with them. No hacking team in Bangladesh considers them as hackers, but why does the public keep them in their head? There is no word in the propaganda. So there is no big hacking team or hacker in Bangladesh?
The answer is yes. I know a lot of big brothers [names that might come to mind here] who have occupied top positions on big cyber security platforms like Synac, Cobalt, HackerOne, BugCrowd and their achievements cannot be overstated here.
And the list of the top 50 ranking of the best place zone-h to get ideas about the top hacking team which you can see by visiting this link
Among the top 50 hacking teams, there are 4 teams in Bangladesh whose names are marked by screenshot.
Team_CC is ranked number one in Bangladesh and No. 9 in the world at zone-h.org in the defense rankings.
Err0r SquaD Zone-h ranks Bangladesh No. 2 and International 15. In the BGHH defense rankings, their rank is 3rd in Bangladesh and 16th in the International.
Cyber_Sw0rd is ranked No. 4 in Bangladesh and International 44, although their team activity was turned off 5-6 years ago due to Cyber Sword being so far behind.
And there is the legendary hacker Tiger-M @ TE of our country. He is the only hacker in Bangladesh who hijacked Google's domain name server more than once. Yahoo, Microsoft, youtube, bbc gave big sites deface, hacked 8 lakh + websites overnight. How many people know about his brother?
There are many more teams that will make the post bigger if you write. Bangladesh Cyber Army, 3xp1red Cyber Army, BD Black Hat Hackers will be a sin not to name. ❤️
So why didn't I mention the name of your Cyber-71 in such a big achievement? In fact, there is nothing to say! What should I say then?
Zone-h does not even have their rank in the top 50 list. If someone claims to be a hacker from a page of millions of likes, then the public will believe it! Isn't it?
Because even if we go to buy something on Facebook, we don't see it. More likes on any page. Those who like more are better. So what else can I blame the innocent people here. Be aware to have time. Self-protection in one's own hands.
