Anti-Israeli Hacker Group Claims To Release Details of 26,000 Israeli Credit Cards

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

“Team Poison”, a well-known hacking group, has claimed to have published the details of 26,000 Israeli credit cards on Wednesday night, in yet another skirmish in the ongoing cyber war between pro-Israeli and anti-Israeli hackers.

The group released a statement, which said in part:  “IsraHell has been committing genocide, infanticide, and every day homicide since 1948 and the world and her citizens have been aiding and abetting and financing this! . . . The war has begun”.

Team Poison has infiltrated numerous websites since the group was established in 2009, including that of the United Nations.

Cyber Attacks UPDATE: Pro-Israel hacker strikes Saudi Arabian Weather Site

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

Pro-Israel hackers struck the Saudi Arabian meteorological website Thursday.

A message was left on the website, saying “this is only the beginning. What does the Saudi hacker 0x0mar have to say now?”

0xOmar is the anti-Israel hacker that released the details of thousands of Israel credit cardholders, which marks the initiation of what has turned into an Arab-Israel cyber war.

Cyber Attacks UPDATE: Pro-Israeli Hacker Claims Strike on Iranian Sites

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

A pro-Israeli hacker going by the name “Hannibal” claimed to release files that contained confidential information on Iran.

Hannibal said the files he has leaked were only a small percentage of the data in his possession.

“Today I’m leaking confidential information of the Iranian Army, Iranian government and citizens,” Hannibal wrote in a posting on Pastebin, a file-sharing website. “It’s nothing compared to what I have. This percentage is very small.”

He also claimed that he was “working on hacking into the computers of Iran’s nuclear facilities.”

This represents another foray by Hannibal into the ongoing cyber war, and follows shortly after his release last week of the Facebook passwords and credit card information of thousands of Saudi nationals.

Hackers Shut Down Stock Exchange, El Al Sites

Monday, January 16th, 2012

Hackers followed through with their pledge to step up their cyber war with Israel, shutting down the websites of the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and El Al Airlines on Monday.

Trading on the stock exchange was not affected by the attack, but the TASE and El Al websites were unavailable to users for hours before technicians were able to restore them.

The attack came just hours after 0xOmar, the Saudi hacker who exposed the credit details of thousands of Israelis, threatened a second hacking attack on Israeli websites. Credit for the attack was claimed by hackers calling themselves “Nightmare Group”. Hamas congratulated the group and encouraged further attacks on Israeli computer systems as part of a comprehensive battle against the Jewish state.

In previous cyber attacks on Israel, the public websites of the Shin Bet and Mossad intelligence services, as well as other government websites, have been hacked.

The government has now established a National Cyber Committee, under retired general Yitzhak Ben Yisrael, to prevent such attacks.

After 0xOmar posted the personal details of thousands of Israelis online, an Israeli hacker retaliated by posting non-sensitive credit information pertaining to hundreds of Saudis, calling it a warning against escalating the cyber war with Israel.
