Cyber Attack on Israel Fails to Cripple Websites

The Shin Bet was prepared for a hacker attack on Israeli websites by Anonymous, which would be smart to stay that way considering its failure.

The Anonymous hacker group caused more damage to its own reputation Monday than it did to Israeli websites.

The Anonymous hacker group caused more damage to its own reputation Monday than it did to Israeli websites.

A coordinated cyber-attack on Israeli websites led by the international hacking group Anonymous has so far been relatively ineffective.

It announced that Monday would be “Operation Israel,” or “OpIsrael,” a day of targeting Israeli websites in retaliation for Israel’s “assault on the people of Gaza.”

“On April 7, 2014, we call upon our brothers and sisters to hack, deface, hijack, database leak, admin takeover, and DNS terminate the Israeli Cyberspace by any means necessary,” Anonymous said in a message posted on YouTube. “We will not stop until the police state becomes a free state and Palestine is free.”

The websites of the Israel postal service and the Education Ministry came down briefly, and the hackers also published on line a list of phone numbers, emails and passwords of senior Israeli officials.

Anonymous posted as message that Israel must “cease and desist any further military action and illegal settlements or the consequences will become worse with each passing hour.”

The attack comes exactly one year after an identical attack launched against Israel by Anonymous. Last year’s attack took down dozens of Israeli websites and saw published online a list of hundreds of Israeli email addresses and credit card numbers.

    Anonymous are a bunch of “anonymous” schmucks….

    I’m still wondering what happened to those “million members of the Army of Islam” that were supposedly “marching to free Jerusalem” all over every Israeli and Jewish Facebook site last year. Apparently the Army of Islam isn’t strong on navigation. That, or their mommies aren’t letting them out till they clean up their room in her basement.

    Praying protection over Israel’s internet system and infrastructure!

  7. These acts only make Israelis more determined. Bring it on!

  8. They did this bull**** last year! (and they failed). They attack websites of hospitals, educational facilities, yad vashem, swim clubs, yoga sites, a cancer therapy website and other less protected and most vulnerable sites, just like their arabic buddies attack the civilian population. And even in this area most of the time they achieve very limited success.

    Keep playing. Israeli hackers already hacked anti-Israel sites in anticipation. Long live the Stuxnet nation!

    "anonymous" – a group of small children. Israel is prepared for a real cyber war against hostile armies, so a few bored children do not pose any risk to Israel.

    BTW, I've never seen Anonymous use multicolored text or leave email addresses on sites they hack. They are mostly Arabs and Muslims attacking on behalf of Anonymous, but they don't seem to belong to the broader organization.

    Attacks to God has never and will never succeed.
