Sixty thousand Israelis attempted to solve a riddle published by the Shin Bet last Thursday as part of a new recruitment drive for its elite cyber unit. Only six have succeeded in solving the puzzle so far.

Only 20 out of the 60,000 who tried their hand at the riddle managed to solve the part aimed at those suited to the development section of the cyber unit, and only six succeeded in solving all three parts of the riddle aimed at the research section of the unit.

The Shin Bet launched the riddle online as part of a new campaign to recruit the best and brightest from Israeli society. The intelligence organization called the campaign "thwarting the next threat, defending Israel."

The cyber geniuses who solved the riddle will be invited to apply for one of the unique technological posts at the forefront of IDF technology and to integrate into the unique and new developing cyber unit positions offered by the Shin Bet to these candidates. 25% of Shin Bet personnel are in the techology, IT and cyber sections of the service.

The Shin Bet noted that all those interested in developing a career in the security service will be able to significantly shorten the process of applying for various positions on its new site, which also details the positions available, so that within a few minutes a candidate can complete the application process in a simple and user-friendly way.
