Gilets jaunes : les services de renseignement sur la piste de cybermenaces

A yellow vest (Gilets jaunes) protester wearing a Guy Fawkes mask gestures in front of French riot police during a demonstration against rising oil prices and living costs in Tours, central France on December 1, 2018. The "yellow vest" or "Gilets jaunes" movement is named after the high-visibility jackets which motorists are required to carry in their cars. The movement, organised through social media, has steadfastly refused to align with any political party or trade union and includes many pensioners and has been most active in small urban and rural areas where it has blocked roads, closed motorway toll booths, and even walled up the entrance to tax offices.

Des cyber-hacktivistes affiliés aux gilets jaunes auraient déjà mené plusieurs cyberattaques contre des sites institutionnels. Aucun blocage majeur n’a pour le moment été recensé mais la menace est prise très au sérieux par les autorités qui ont intercepté des messages inquiétants visant des grandes administrations mais aussi des entreprises.
