Round Two in Hacker War: El Al Site Attacked
Arutz Sheva ^ | 16/1/12 | Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

Hacker “OxOmar,” dubbed the “Saudi Hacker,” struck again on Monday, this time shutting down the El Al and Tel Aviv Stock Exchange information site. The cyber attack did not affect the site on which investors trade stocks, and trading was not affected.

The hacker struck last month by invading thousands of accounts of Israeli credit card holders.

The El Al site was shut down as of mid-morning, and the Stock Exchange site was available but not operable.

OxOmar blocked the El Al site but did not take control of it or damage its content. The real damage is to the image of El Al, which like every other airline invests huge sums of money in its websites so travelers can order tickets on line and check schedules.

A pro-Israeli computer hacker retaliated to the first hacker attack on credit cards, invading Arab credit card accounts and publishing details of accounts of 20,000 Arab Facebook clients.

The hacker, who calls himself Hannibal, said he gained information that can be used to break into the bank accounts of 10 million Muslims in Saudi Arabia and Iran.

Stereotypes are nasty things. But in order for them to have any currency, they must be based on some element of truth. Nobody speaks of lazy, shiftless Scotsmen, or drunken, wife-beating Jews. There most certainly are such individuals, but they do not, and never have typified the culture/ethnic background from which they come. Neither do the stereotypes actually used, but some small germ of truth must keep them circulating. So the stereotypes of Joos! is that we are, inter alia, smart and devious, of Arabs is that they are, inter alia, devious and smart, in those respective orders. Then why is it that Hannibal says he can break into bank accounts of 10 million Muslims in Saudi Arabia and Iran? Why not just do it. He'd be rolling in dough if he acted fast enough, and with a bit of selectivity he might have impoverish some evil people who really deserve to be brought down. Was that smart? You're belying the stereotype, Hannibal. I'm hacked off.

Bet Oxomar is an American antisemitic tech college grad who converted to Islam.

Probably an OWS and Ron Paul fan.
