The IDF Spokeperson’s twitter account was hacked last night.
The following message was sent out to their 252,000 Twitter followers:
IDF @IDFSpokesperson 03/07/14 23:15 #WARNING: Possible nuclear leak in the region after 2 rockets hit Dimona nuclear facility
Once the IDF spokesperson’s office realized they’d been hacked, they blocked it and sent out the following statement:
IDF @IDFSpokesperson We apologize for the incorrect tweets Our twitter account was compromised. We will combat terror on all fronts including the cyber dimension
So don’t worry. Hamas terrorists haven’t hit Dimona, yet, but not necessarily for lack of trying.
Their blog is currently down too (8:00 AM), hopefully just for upgrading its security.
We hope that the IDF Cyber Unit has a little chat with the IDF Spokesperson’s office about Internet security.
