An anti-Israeli group is posing as the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and trying to plant spyware in personal computers by sending email in the name of General Security Service, Israel Defense reports.
Attributing the report to informed officials, it said that the group of cyber attackers copy data from the Shin Bet website and then impersonate as the Shine Bet.
After the receiver opens the email, a worm crawls into the computer, allowing the hackers to keep track of information on the computers.
Israel Defense said that the Shin Bet is trying to stop the hackers.
