Cyber Warfront: Hacker Group Warns Israel of ‘Reign of Terror’

Friday, February 10th, 2012

The hacker group Anonymous released a video today warning Israel of an impending “reign of terror” for alleged “crimes against humanity”.

The group, who was responsible for exposing an email exchange in which Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad was coached on how to conduct himself in an interview, has decided to set its sights on the Jewish state.

“For too long, we have tolerated your crimes against humanity and allowed your sins to go unpunished,” their message said. “You claim to be democratic, yet in reality, this is far from the truth. In fact, your only goal is to better the lives of a select few while carelessly trampling the liberties of the masses.”

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.

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.

Gaza Hackers take over Israel Fire and Rescue Website

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

Arab computer hackers defaced the Israel Fire and Rescue Services’ official website and replaced its content with anti-Israel photographs and messages.

For a few hours Friday, a photograph of a Palestinian gunman alongside Arab language anti-Israel epithets appeared in place of fire and rescue information. The message identified the hackers as the same ones that were behind the hacking of the personal website of Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon website last week. The hackers also taunted the Israeli government, writing: “Why don’t you understand that this is an embarrassing situation for you and that you cannot get out of it?” the message said.
