More Attacks on Israeli Websites

As expected, more reports of web defacements related to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict are coming in. Current estimate is around 10,000 websites have been attacked worldwide.

"The defacements have primarily affected small businesses and vanity Web pages hosted on Israel's .il Internet domain space. One such site was that of Israel's Galoz Electronics Ltd. On Wednesday, the hacked Web site read "RitualistaS GrouP Hacked your System!!! The world isn't insurance!!! For a better world."

"Other attackers have placed more incendiary messages condemning the U.S. and Israel and adding graphic photographs of the violence."
We should expect this trend to escalate as events on the ground continue.

With Gaza Conflict, Cyberattacks Come Too
