Purported Emails Coaching Syria’s Assad on US Interview Exposed

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was coached on how to answer accusations over his regime’s brutal repression of the 11-month old revolt, according to purported emails released by a hacking group known as ‘Anonymous’.

Anonymous claimed to have infiltrated the server of the Syrian Ministry of Presidential Affairs and exposed the emails and passwords of scores of Syrian officials.

The most damning email exchange discussed how Assad should address accusations in an interview with ABC’s Barbara Walters. Sheherazad Ja’afari, Syria’s press attaché at the United Nations and daughter of the Syrian Ambassador to the United Nations, wrote that the “American psyche can be easily manipulated when they hear that there are ‘mistakes’ done and now we are ‘fixing it,'” adding not to “talk reform. American’s won’t care, or understand that.”

Indeed during his interview with Walters in December, Assad ascribed some of the reports of violence to “individual mistakes.”

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.

Cyber Attacks UPDATE: Israeli Hackers Strike Back

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.

Cyber Attacks UPDATE: Israeli hackers retaliate; Israeli Cabinet Minister Condemns

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Israeli hackers took the websites of both the Saudi Stock Exchange and the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange offline Monday, in the latest salvo in the cyber war between Israeli and anti-Israeli hackers.

The Israeli hackers, going by the name IDF-Team, wrote that their attack came in response to the “lame” hacking of Israeli websites of El Al and the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange on Monday by Arab hacker ox0mar. The hackers pledged that if the anti-Israel attacks continue, they will intensify their assault and “paralyze websites for a period of two weeks to a month.”

“State of Israel, not to worry, you’re in the hands of the world’s best hacker,” one of the Israeli hackers, Hannibal, wrote. “I will continue to support the government of Israel will continue to attack the Arab countries.”

In a sharp response, Likud MK and Minister of Intelligence Services Dan Meridor, condemned the pro-Israel cyber attacks.

“Individual initiatives by Israeli hackers to attack Saudi hackers, or hackers from anywhere else for that matter, are ineffective and shouldn’t be done in Israel’s name,” he said.
