Regardless of all worries of the country, the only thing getting blown up in a so-called “cyber war” that has erupted in Israel seems to be a sense of all proportion.
Cyber intruders have somehow disrupted access to the official sites of the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (known as TASE) and the country’s largest carrier El Al Airlines. For some reason, the latter panicked and issued a response which became a string of over the top statements from the company’s press office: it claimed that Israel was involved in a cyber war!
El Al Airlines has announced in its statement that the country has been attacked in a kind of a “cyber war” within the last couple weeks. Nobody knows why, but the company claimed that the attacks had come from Saudi Arabia. The facts are that the website of El Al Airlines crashed, and it said the company has been busy trying to solve the problem. Aside from the airline, another organization complained about hacker attack: the stock exchange also said that it experienced cyber attack on the access routes to its site. In the interview, deputy manager of the exchange’s marketing and communications unit explained that the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange’s trading activities are currently operating normally.
Meanwhile, the intruder in question is suspected to be the same individual who recently published thousands of personal credit card details of the Israel citizens, that has been gleaned from commercial sites during the worst case of mass cyber identity theft that Israel had even seen. Although the intruder claimed to reside in Saudi Arabia, a number of security experts still claim that the hacker was from South America. Up to date, no individual or hacker group has claimed responsibility for these cyber attacks, so it might be not the same person. Nevertheless, this hasn’t stopped El Al Airlines bumping up the “cyber war” rhetoric.
Although the government of the attacked country has already threatened to respond militarily to defend its online structures, attacking Saudi schools from air when the hacker might be in Brazil could be a bit over the top. In addition, Israel forgets that there were only three minor hacks. Still, it set up an agency to address cyber attacks earlier in January, whose founding member explained that Israeli most vital systems had already been protected, but the hacker attacks were likely to increase.

|Israel Robber land Palestine ....It is a state criminal|
|Ahahah I can see it now, Israel claim they are under cyber war and ask the USA for billions to protect its online infastructure, the guys commiting the hacks (most likely Jewish in origin) will get a small fee for creating the panic that got them billions for national budget to spend on tanks, planes and munitions. They will then attack lebanon like back in 2006 only to have all those nice and shiney new toys blown up by hezbollah just like back in 2006 ahahah.|
For an nation who cannot even succesfully attack the lebenon guarded by men with beards, rpg, ak47 and fox holes/trenches to hide them, how do they expect to even scare Iran? Oh yeah they gonna go cry to big brother USA for help with the kid who kicked their ass and stole their lunch money...
|thnx for the article......seems like everyone is always hateing on israel .|
|the world never looked the same after WWII since the british and american governments decided to create a nation in the middle east. all the world religious and political chaos, hatred, killings, ruins, wars, or whatever occurred since then are the outcome of the worst political decision made by super powers in human history.|
|No one has laid claim because no one but mossad did the attacks. Same thing they did here in US with CIA blow up buildings and then blame arabs.|
|@housearrested IF "all the world religious and political chaos, hatred, killings, ruins, wars, or whatever occurred since then" are a result of the creation if Israel, who do you blame for "all the world religious and political chaos, hatred, killings, ruins, wars, or whatever" that had occured prior to the creation of Israel?? Check your history before you open your mouth to show your ignorance. From the beginning of the history of mankind "world religious and political chaos, hatred, killings, ruins, wars, or whatever" have all been a constant factor. How narrow minded can you be to blame over 4000 years of that on people of the Jewish Faith? In case you wonder, no, I am not Jewish. I speak out because I am done with people like you spreading hate......|
|I wouldn't be surprised if they created the problem in order to come up with a solution.|
Say NO to CENSORSHIP!!
|Attacks can not be left|
behind only the Americans
and the Israelis and the Arabs
blame the poor !!
