Anonymous Hacks Israeli Websites, Leaks Data in Protest Against Gaza Attacks

Anonymous Hacks Israeli Websites, Leaks Data in Protest Against Gaza Attacks

“For far too long, Anonymous has stood by with the rest of the world and watched in despair the barbaric, brutal and despicable treatment of the Palestinian people in the so called ‘Occupied Territories’ by the Israel Defense Force,” the hackers wrote in a statement announcing the operation.

“Like so many around the globe, we have felt helpless in the face of such implacable evil. And today’s insane attack and threatened invasion of Gaza was more of the same. But when the government of Israel publicly threatened to sever allInternet and other telecommunications into and out of Gaza they crossed a line in the sand.”

The hackers have even released a “tech guide for Internet shutdown” and a “first aid guide” for the people of Palestine. The documents, available in both English and Arabic, contain survival information, details on how to build radio communications and ways of evading Israeli Defense Forces (IDS) surveillance.

“To the people of Gaza and the ‘Occupied Territories’, know that Anonymous stands with you in this fight. We will do everything in our power to hinder the evil forces of the IDF arrayed against you. We will use all our resources to make certain you stay connected to the Internet and remain able to transmit your experiences to the world,” they said.

According to Cyber War News, a number of websites – including danybarshay.co.il, deplus.co.il, filtuna.co.il iconcept.co.il, iiamo.co.il, andlittner.co.il – have already been defaced as part of OpIsrael.

1. More, from Forbes:


As the Israeli army rains shells on the Gaza strip Thursday, it’s also gone on the offensive online, posting videos of its attacks on Hamas targets and live-tweeting its campaign. Now the hacker group Anonymous has responded with a digital bombardment of its own.

In a series of attacks it’s calling “OpIsrael,” Anonymous went on a spree of website defacement and takedown attacks Thursday, calling on members to flood forty sites with junk web traffic designed to knock them offline and defacing websites including the privacy firm Israeli Security Academy and a blog the group described as belonging to the Israeli Defense Forces. “We Anonymous will not sit back and watch a cowardly Zionist State demolish innocent people’s lives.” reads one message posted to a defaced site, along with an image of smoke rising over what appears to be a Palestinian city.

Perhaps a bit hyperbolically, the message added, “We have taken down your top security and surveillance website.”

Another message on a hacked site attributes the attack to Pakistani Anonymous hackers: “The people of Pakistan are always supporting the brave people of Gaza, we love you!”

Anonymous Twitter accounts provided links to what they described as an Anonymous Gaza Care Package with tools for staying online if Israel cuts Internet service the Gaza Strip during its military action. Another hacker group, Telecomix, provided its own detailed instructions in English and Arabic for using dial-up connections, a technique it first suggested during the Egyptian Internet outage surrounding the Arab Spring protests there last year.
