2018-04-25 | MITM attack targets Amazon Route 53, Operation GhostSecret, and Doxing on the Daily
Wednesday, April 25
Test run? About 1,300 addresses for Amazon Route 53 were rerouted for two hours using a man in the middle attack. The attackers managed to steal about $150,000 of currency from MyEtherWallet users. Given the scale of pulling off the attack, one theory is this was a test run. Researcher Kevin Beaumont said in his blog post “The security vulnerabilities in BGP and DNS are well known, and have been attacked before. This is the largest scale attack I have seen which combines both, and it underscores the fragility of internet security.”
