Voyager Mobile malicious network attack thwarts launch
The other day we reported on a new MVNO over in the good old US of A called Voyager Mobile who were going to offer no contract phones on unlimited plans without any gimmicks. However it appears that the launch of Voyager Mobile didn’t go as planned due to the network being attacked, which resulted in Voyager Mobile closing their website.
According to an article over on Redorit, the Voyager Mobile website, shortly after launch underwent a malicious network attach that forced the MVNO to shut up shop and post a message that said that due to the network outage, Voyager Mobile is postponing its launch to a date and time in the near future.
Apparently no one has come forth to claim responsibility for the malicious network attack on Voyager Mobile, and word is there is no apparent motive involved, and Voyager Mobile has apparently declined to comment on the attack, and hasn’t stated just when they will have the website back up and running.
Voyager Mobile as mentioned in our previous article, offers unlimited text and talk plans starting at $19 a month without any credit checks with such Android devices as the Motorola Photon 4G, Samsung Galaxy Epic Touch 4G and the Motorola XPRT along with others, although it appears that cyber criminals have something against what Voyager Mobile has to offer.
Apparently though according to the guys, the FBI has been cracking down on such cyber criminals and attackers, and have been asking other hackers for help in stopping such attacks.
