Israeli Hackers: We'll Attack Saudi, Arab Servers

A group of Israeli web hackers said Monday that they would hack into Saudi servers and publish credit card data, “returning the favor” to a Saudi hacker who claimed to have been the one to invade Israeli servers and publish the credit card details of 15,000 Israelis last week. A spokesperson for the Israeli hacker group said that the group had been “taken by surprise” by the successful Saudi escapade. “In the first few days after it happened we were silent, but now we have decided not to remain silent any longer, and we set up a group to hack into computers in Arab countries and reveal as much information as possible about citizens of those countries, including credit card details.”

The hacker said that one reason the Saudi was able to enter Israeli servers was due to the “silly security policies in effect today. We should be allowing those who are capable of doing so to use their skills to warn off hackers, instead of preventing them from doing so.”
