Hackers Take Down Official Mossad Website, Details of 30,000 Israeli Officials Leaked
Several hacktivist groups are planning to unite their forces for OpIsrael starting with April 7. However, in the meantime, others keep targeting high-profile Israeli websites as a form of protest against the Israeli government.
The latest attack is the result of cooperation between Sector 404, Anonymous and the notorious Turkish collective RedHack.
The hacktivists have launched a distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attack against mossad.gov.il, the official website of the Israeli Secret Intelligence Service.
In addition, hackers also published the personal details of more than 30,000 people, but the data leak isn’t directly linked to the attack on Mossad’s website.
The list of affected individuals reportedly includes politicians, government employees, military and police officials.
