Report: Hacker Group Threatens Wide-Scale Attack


The international hacker group OpIsraelBirthday# has started to attack a series of Israeli Internet sites, tying them to the capture of the Iranian arms ship, according to a Monday-morning report by the Yisrael Hayom daily.

The information-security company MadSec reported that the VISA CAL Weekend was infiltrated and personal information on customers was taken. Hackers noted on Facebook that this was an "early release" ahead of a widespread attack on Israel, scheduled for April 4th, the 65th anniversary of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
