Yesterday morning, hacktivists calling themselves “DoomSec” posted an announcement on their Telegram channel concerning Israel
The announcement read, in part:
“For who say YourAnonSpider is support Israel Government ;
Gov.il | is official portal of Israel
F*** You Israel government!
#DoomSec Was Here
Later in the day, DoomSec listed a number of Israeli sites that were allegedly impacted, but that post was subsequently removed.
DoomSec does not appear to be a group whose agenda is focused on support of Iran. In the past, DoomSec has collaborated with AgainstTheWest in publishing documents on various APT groups.
