Bank of Israel Website Attacked

The Bank of Israel is reporting that its website has been repeatedly attacked by Islamic 'hackers' using an Algerian server.

From the report, it appears the bank's IT staff had not adequately addressed known security vulnerabilities.
"Governor of the Bank of Israel Prof. Stanley Fischer was taken by surprise by the hacking of the bank's website last week, and in a moment of anger announced that he would fire those responsible."
