Hackers disrupt Israel's stock exchange, airline, banks


www.msnbc.msn.com

Hackers disrupted online access to the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange, El Al Airlines and three banks on Monday in what the government described as a cyber-offensive against Israel.

The attacks came just days after an unidentified hacker, proclaiming Palestinian sympathies, posted the details of thousands of Israeli credit card holders and other personal information on the Internet in a mass theft.

Stock trading and El Al flights operated normally despite the disruption, which occurr

Just when I was thinking that things couldn't get more hectic over there...

I remember reading about Anonymous claiming they were joining the fight against Israel due to the Iranian situation but I'm unsure if this is related.

I also remember Israel threatening a strong response to hacking so I hope this doesn't mean Israel is planning on bombing Saudi Arabia now.

Once more details are made available we can start speculating about this, until then I will refrain from sharing any theories even though I already have considered some very valid possibilities.

Any thoughts?

Stop being stupid. Israel is not going to bomb Saudi Arabia.

The last hacker was suggested he may have come out of Saudi Arabia, but it was more likely Mexico.

Israel is not going to bomb a nation over computer hacking.

Things are certainly heating up! This was not the work of OxOmar but rather a new group called Nightmare, by way of showing support. It will be interesting to see this one pan out, I think Israel upset a lot of people by threatening to kill the hacker. Someone should tell them hackers dont take kindly to that kind of thing. I expect this will get a whole lot worse.

PS Not sure if anyone still has the HB Gary emails saved but I ran across this quote on twitter "take a look at "soysauce" malware when searching Qinetiq in the emails. Seems China been hackin their drones since 06!"

Maybe China landed that drone in Tehran?

Strong retaliation against cyber warfare could be returning the favor to whoever did it. Perhaps they could download gigs of child porn onto the perpetrator's computer and send the authorities?

My intentions were not to be "stupid", I was only going by previous Israeli announcements which were discussed in the thread link I provided in my third post. You should check it out if you haven't done so already.

Name calling isn't very nice BTW


Israel has vowed a strong response against hackers, are you unaware of this?

Israeli Information Minister Yuli Edelstein told a conference in Tel Aviv that the cyber attacks were part of a wider move to smear the country's reputation and "threaten Israel's economic stability and security."


What a tool to think this was a ploy to smear their reputation . Israel standing alone is a smear on the state not to mention their actions over the past 60 years. And from I remember israel doesn't have anything left of an economy . They rely on the west for hand out and donations. hence the rioting this summer. What does israel export what resources does that little s**t hole really have.

But...But...But...


Minister Yuli Edelstein said:

Israeli Information Minister Yuli Edelstein told a conference in Tel Aviv that the cyber attacks were part of a wider move to smear the country's reputation and "threaten Israel's economic stability and security."

"It's another episode in the war our enemies are conducting as a campaign of delegitimization to hit our pockets and lifestyle," he said, in reported comments confirmed by his spokesman.

"Israel must use all measures at its disposal to prevent these virtual dangers from turning into real threats and to prevent with all its force attacks against it and its institutions. Today it's credit card theft and toppling Web sites, and tomorrow it could be theft of security information and harm to infrastructure."
Sounds like military action is not ruled out !



And this GEM:

Israel opened an agency to tackle cyber attacks earlier this month. A founding member of the unit, Isaac Ben-Israel, said the country's most vital systems were already protected, but that incidents like the ones seen recently would only increase.

"As long as the systems are not guarded, any hacker anywhere in the world can break into them and do damage," Ben-Israel said on Israel Radio. "I believe that, done right, in a year or two, we will be able to wipe out all these hackers' threats."
Lot of good that has done so far .....



Next, Israel will ask for a U.N. resolution

Here is an article with some further quotes from the hacker.
www.ynetnews.com...

"OxOmar" told Ynet via email that he has teemed up with "Nightmare," a group of pro-Palestinian hackers that have claimed responsibility for shutting down the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and El Al's websites earlier Monday

The group, he said, also tampered with Bank Massad's website. "A lot of Arab hackers decided to join us and we are managing a private channel together," he said.

He explained that the websites were chosen because of their great number of users, adding that the group intends to target other strategic Israeli websites.

"No one in this world going to arrest me. It's impossible to find me and I'll keep attacking Israel. Just stay and watch," he promised.

OhOh !

If they trace the email IP address ...... it's bombs away !

Maybe this guy OxOmar has reprogrammed the Stuxnet virus to turn on its' own makers


This could be a real Nightmare on Elm Street

Do Zionists think only they are capable of creating Stuxnet and disrupt institutions in other nations?

The Zionists started it and just getting a taste of their own medicine.

Another interview with OxOmar I came across, this one published the 9th

hackread.com...

This quote stands out to me
"You said in a press release that you have hacked “much more than you can imagine.” What else do you have?
I have entire Israeli population database even dead people. I have documents of Israeli companies who build jammers and military survellance. I have their customers and their emails. There technical documents. Half million more credit cards. And much more

Can you show me any of the unpublished documents as proof?
hmmm prefer to not share now. I’ll leak when media forgot me. I’ll start leaking to re-get media. I’ll publish them one by one. I’ll be in media for at least 2 month"

Looks like this is far from over.

It's a long way to bomb Mexico.

Perhaps they could stage out of Texas.

My guess is that Israel's previous threats were more verbal than anything, maybe as a deterrent for would be hackers.

I'm worried about Israel trying to blame these hacks on Iran, wouldn't that be convenient?

I don't know how much of this BS I can handle.

Good ... hope the hackers put israel offline permanently ...

if I personally were to think anything in the past week was a false flag, intuition is just screaming this is it.
what better way to legitimize what they will do in the next weeks on the internet and in real life?

"Mainstream" sources are now covering the information you shared earlier:

‘I want to harm Israel,’ Saudi hacker tells ‘Post’

“I want to hurt/harm Israel in any possible [way],” 0xOmar said by e-mail.


This is starting to smell fishy.
