The Saudi hacker, who last week published the credit card details of thousands of Israelis, struck again on Wednesday and published a list of an additional 200 Israeli credit card numbers.

Channel 10 News reported that the hacker, who calls himself OxOmar, said the latest list comes in response to the publishing earlier this week of Saudi credit card numbers by an Israeli hacker. The Saudis had denied any hacking at first, but several Saudi citizens admitted on Wednesday that their credit card information had indeed been published.

OxOmar, according to the report, also called on Arab hackers to unite against Israel, and focus their efforts on the websites of the Israeli military and security agencies. He also encouraged hackers to break into various Israeli websites and steal credit card numbers. “We will fight you and hurt you in any way possible,” he was quoted as having warned Israelis.

Channel 2 News reported that the hacker also took advantage of the opportunity to taunt Israel and the Mossad, saying he is untraceable.

“Russian intelligence shut down my e-mail address at mail.ru,” he wrote in his message, noting he was now using the e-mail service of gaza.net. “I saw that a few stupid people said they found me: one in Mexico, one in Riyadh, one in Dubai. Let me tell you: Nobody can find me. Mossad, do not waste your time.”

He noted that he uses data encryption capabilities so it would be hard to locate him. “If you look for me you’ll probably arrive in Helsinki, Minsk, New York, Tel Aviv, Haifa, Tokyo, Moscow and other places,” he said.
