Hackers attack 750 Israeli websites in protest of IDF operation in Gaza

A group of Moroccan hackers attacked hundreds of Israeli websites on Wednesday. Some reports say that as many as 750 websites with the suffix co.il have come under attack.

The website attacks started after Israel Defense Forces began preparing for the retaliatory “Summer Rain” operation in Gaza, in response to the kidnapping of IDF soldier Gilad Shalit on Sunday.

The hacker group, which calls itself ‘Team Evil’, replaces the home page of the target websites with the following text: “Hacked By Team-Evil Arab hackers u KIll palestin people we Kill Israel servers” (sic).


Some of the sites under attack are Globus Group ticketing, the Rambam Hospital website, the sites of Bank Hapoalim and Bank Otsar Hahayal, and the site of the pension and provident fund management group Halman-Aldubi. Smaller sites have also been targeted.

TheMarker has discovered that all the targeted sites are hosted by Netvision servers.
