Cyberattack on Kenya’s digital infrastructure

Kenya’s eCitizen portal, used by the public to access over 5,000 services, has been under a massive attack that has affected the key government online platform for almost a week.

The hacker collective Anonymous Sudan has reportedly claimed responsibility for several distributed-denial-of-service attacks against digital public infrastructure, according to local trade publication Technext.

The cyberattack has affected passport, visa, national ID, driver’s license and medical record services, according to reports.
