Anti-Israel Hackers Plan Mass Attack for April 7 (Video)

Monday, March 10th, 2014

Hackers attacked an out-of-date Israel credit card website Monday and are planning a massive attack on websites and mobile phones on April 7, according to experts of the Aman group, ClearSky and Terrogence.

Next month is “Hacktivists month.” In this day and age of suicidal liberalism, when will there be a National Terrorists’ Month?

Until then, we will have to settle for a month of intensified attempts to bring the Israeli economy and government to its knees.

“As the dates of the attacks approach we identify more and more cyber-attacks against Israeli sites and leaks of databases,” said Chaim Levy, director of cyber sales in Aman Group, quoted by Israel Defense. “We have already identified claims of hackers for attacks against routers and modems in Israel and for stealing thousands of email addresses which will be leaked, according to the attackers, on April 7th.

“At the same time, we should pay attention to the growing use and interest in Amplification attacks including NTP attacks. We have already located a person seeking to obtain guidance on the use of this method towards the coming operation.”

A cyber-attack on Monday hit an old site of the Visa credit card company in Israel. “Free Palestine” appeared on the site along with the names, e-mail address, identity card numbers, home addresses and telephones of approximately 1,000 credit card holders. However, no credit card numbers were published.

Visa explained that the site that was attacked is an old site that is not part of its active credit card system, which is highly protected against cyber-attacks.

Levy said that the hackers behind Monday’s attack and the assault planned in April are from groups organized in the Muslim world, including Indonesia, the Palestinian Authority, Syria, Jordan and North Africa.

The campaign was officially launched on February 9th, under the name OpIsrael 3.0, with the opening of an official Twitter page (not active for over two weeks) and distribution of a list of 1,300 Israeli internet sites, including those of the government, banks, defense industries, academic institutions and, the media.

They also plan to send spam messages on mobile phones.

The attack on April is planned to follow last year’s invasions and therefore is being called OpIsraelBirthday.

Organizers have released an anti-Israel YouTube, which concludes with threats of cyber-attacks. The video announces to Israel, with grammatical mistakes, “We are AnonGhost Team!! We are always here to punish you, as we did in the last operation on the 7th of April.

“And we are back again to celebrate it, Because we are the voice of Palestine and we will not remain silent.

“Muslims are Everywhere.

“Israel Doesn’t exist its only Palestine…The 7th of April every year will be a Victory celebration. We are proud of what we did before and after 1 year we are capable to take this to another level.

“We won’t forgive your Crime against our brothers in Palestine.

“You better watch. and Expect us.”

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

Pro-Israeli hackers revealed the details of over 4,800 Saudi Arabian credit cardholders, just days after the websites of El Al, the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange, and Israel’s Anti-Drug Authority were attacked.

The hacker group, which calls itself ‘IDF-Team’, also struck the websites of the United Arab Emirates Central Bank and Gaza’s Arab Bank of Palestine, and claimed that they accessed the information by infiltrating the database of one of Saudi Arabia’s largest banks.
‘IDF-Team’ also warned that should attacks against Israeli websites continue, they will “disable [Arab] stock market, gov’t, economic, [and] security sites.”

On Wednesday night, anti-Israel hackers infiltrated the server of the Anti-Drug Authority and redirected visitors to a website featuring images of Palestinian gunmen and the words “death to Israel” written in Hebrew.

The hackers left a message in Hebrew, writing: “Dear Managers. This is not a joke nor a dream. This is the true reality. From Kurdistan or Iraq. Blessings from all of the Kurdish hackers.” Shiloh is Jewish town in Samaria, north of Jerusalem.
