Credit card companies say list is repetitive and contains details of hundreds, not thousands of Israelis.
Saudi hackers claimed Monday to have released the credit card information of hundreds of thousands of Israelis, after hacking one of Israel's leading sports websites.
A hacker claiming to be a member of the Saudi hacking group, Group-XP, claimed Monday that he penetrated one of Israel's leading sports websites and released the personal information of hundreds of thousands of Israelis.
Israeli credit card companies said Monday that the list is repetitive and only includes 14,000 Israelis.
He wrote that they found the idea of “400 thousand people crowding Israeli credit card companies and banks and complaining their credit card details were stolen, watching as Israeli banks shredding 400 thousand credit cards and issuing new ones,” was appealing.
And just WHO are these Saudi hackers anyway ?
"There is no reason for customers to panic, the situation has been contained" major Israeli credit card companies said Tuesday, in an effort to reassure thousands of account holders whose details were exposed on Monday.
The panic factor must be huge !
