The Israeli college "Sapir" near the "Sderot" area of the occupied territories was the target of a cyber-attack.

Afghan Voice Agency (AVA): The Israeli newspaper "Arutz Sheva" reported that the students of "Sapir" University near "Sderot" received text messages in which it was written that their personal information was subjected to cyber-attacks.
According to this report, university officials announced: "Last night around 21:00, some final year students and graduates of Sapir College received a text message that their account had been hacked."
Sapir Faculty further added: "We would like to clarify and assure you: that the hacking of the faculty network is under the management of the College's Computing Department and we have deployed a professional consulting team to deal with this problem and we are maintaining constant contact and We support the national cyber officials."
The officials of the aforementioned faculty continued: "So far, no traces of hacking of sensitive information systems or personal accounts have been found.
