Hackers break into Israeli military’s computers, access trove of documents
A decentralized hacker group says it has managed to break into the Israeli military’s computers, accessing a trove of “top secret” documents.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - Monitoring: Anonymous, as the hacker group identifies itself, announced the development in a video message, which was reported on by various media outlets on Friday.
It said it had laid its hands on 20 gigabytes worth of data and a quarter of a million documents, including PDFs, Word files, and PowerPoint presentations.
The military, however, dismissed the breach as minimal, claiming that the hackers were engaging in “psychological warfare.”
Months earlier, Anonymous said it had hacked the Israeli justice ministry, obtaining “eight million” data files reaching up to 300 gigabytes.
The Israeli regime has come under numerous such cyberattacks since last October when it unleashed a yet-ongoing genocidal war on the Gaza Strip.
More than 34,000 Palestinians, most of them women, children, and adolescents, have been killed so far during the war that was launched following a retaliatory operation by the coastal sliver’s resistance groups against the occupied territories.
Earlier this month, it was reported that hackers had managed to breach the Israeli regime’s ministry of military affairs, offering to sell stolen data unless the regime released hundreds of Palestinian prisoners.
The group that referred to itself as “NetHunter,” said it had succeeded in accessing “classified documents” belonging to the ministry./Press tv
