The Microsoft Azure Portal is down on the web as a threat actor known as Anonymous Suda claims to be targeting the site with a DDoS attack.
Attempting to access the portal at https://portal.azure.com displays an error message stating, “Our services aren’t available right now. We’re working to restore all services as soon as possible. Please check back soon.” The mobile app appears unaffected at this time.

At the same time, a threat actor known as Anonymous Sudan claims to be conducting a DDoS attack against the Microsoft Azure portal, sharing an image of the page not working.
Regardless of the threat actor’s origins, this has not been a good week for Microsoft, with the threat actor conducting DDoS attacks on other Microsoft web portals for Outlook.com and OneDrive, which also suffered outages at the same time.
