Dozens of Israeli Internet sites were attacked by hackers of the "hackers of savior" group on Thursday. This is a planned attack that came against the backdrop of al-Quds Day. The sites, most of which are run through the WordPress platform, featured an illustrative video that allegedly attacked Israel, with the caption "Counting the Reverse of Israel Destroyed from A Long Time ago" (errors originally).
Hackers wrote on the YouTube channel: "We gather here to avenge the Zionist crimes against the Palestinians who have died or lost their lives, their families and their lands. What we can do is take revenge from a cyber attack," they wrote on the hackers' YouTube channel. Three links, including the attackers' YouTube channel and their Facebook group, include: "Free Israel", "Zuzbera" restaurant chain, "Beit Gabriel", the Kinneret website, Mitzpe Ramon local council, "Kofix" site and more.
And Tam Finkelstein, Director of Cyber Intelligence at Check Point, said: "Today is a day for Quds and in this context we see an organization of Muslim hackers (probably Turkey, North Africa, the Gaza Strip) working to attack Israeli sites and replace the home with pictures and anti-captions. "These are sites that are stored on the same cloud service and probably created a single point of failure that has damaged a number of sites stored on this service," Finkelstein said. "Although there are a large number of sites in this service, it is generally small in scope. Recommendations: Ensure that the sites are secure with active and up-to-date security products and some of the sites are asked to operate a camera - this should be avoided," he added.
The cyber attack comes after reports that Israel attacked the Iranian port of Shahid Rajai near the city of Bender Abbas earlier this month in response to an Iranian attempt to attack Israeli water infrastructure last month. These are nine attackers who have been active since April. A study by Check Point on the attackers' profiles found that most of them are active in Turkey, North Africa and the Gaza Strip. The hacker group behind the attack was set up on April 11, near "OpIsrael" (Operation Israel), a planned day during which hackers from the Arab world or those who identify with it, attack Israeli sites.
The cyber campaign said: "Hello, in recent hours reports have been received in the National Cyber Arrangement about websites in Israel that have been corrupted with anti-Israel messages. The issue is being addressed by the campaign. We recommend that users avoid clicking links if they go to a corrupt site."
In a message sent to the company's customers, Upress website hosting company said: "Dear customers, today we have detected a large-scale cyber attack on many sites that are stored with us. This is a deliberate and widespread attack by anti-Israeli (Iranian) entities. We have identified a security vulnerability in the WordPress plugin that caused us, We work closely with the Government Cyber Authority, conduct a security investigation and handle all sites. We are currently working diligently to repair the damage damage as soon as possible. Your sites and information are backed up by our backup systems and we are working to address all the affected sites. We promise we will pass it. "
