Skip to comments.Round Two in Hacker War: El Al Site Attacked
Posted on 01/16/2012 2:57:19 AM PST by Eleutheria5
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.
