Hackers publish 165,000 Israelis’ information

Ilan Gattegno reports:

A pro-Syrian hacking group breached Israeli and American websites and released the personal information of over 165,000 Israelis.

The biggest breach, part of an organized cyberattack on numerous websites over the past few days, was in a website that offered web hosting services. The breached site provided all information on its users, including names, phone numbers, email addresses, home addresses and passwords.

More than 40,000 of the compromised records were reviewed and verified as real by Internet security firm Maglan. Some of those whose information was released, however, told Israel Hayom that the passwords leaked were not up to date and had been changed a long time ago.
