Saudi Hacker Tries to Infiltrate Arutz Sheva Website


An attacker or attackers from Saudi Arabia tried to use automated tools to exploit generally-known security holes to break into Arutz Sheva's Website, Monday evening. Except for a few employees who spent part of Tuesday morning erasing tens of thousands of spam emails and 15,000 spam comments, the attempt was stopped and no damage was done.

An attempt on the English Website was made on Sunday but failed in a similar way. The Arutz Sheva development department said it was not surprised by the attempt but is surprised at attempts that succeed at other respected Israeli sites.
