AnonymousOpIsrael attack government websites

Written by Nick Farrell



Want to make it an annual event

On the first anniversary of their 2013 attack, AnonymousOpIsrael have again targeted Israeli government websites. The pro-Palestinian organization managed to attack the Israeli Education Ministry, the Postal Service and the Central Bureau of Statistics.

Anonymous issued a warning message via YouTube Sunday urging their “brothers and sisters to hack, deface, hijack, database leak, admin takeover and DNS terminate the Israeli cyberspace by any means necessary.”

The original cyberattack began on April 7, 2013 and it took down a large number of Israeli websites, including those of the Defence Ministry and the Prime Minister’s office. The hackers also published a list of credit card numbers and email addresses apparently lifted from the website of a business selling equipment to the Israeli military. The government said the actions had not caused significant damage to Israel’s online infrastructure.

AnonymousOpIsrael stated that the latest attack was in retaliation for “crimes against humanity” which the group says the Israeli government committed against Palestinians.
