Anonymous promises more Israeli data leaks

Following its assault on Gaza, Israel has become the target of millions of  DDoS attempts, with claims that several hundred websites have been brought  down.

Anonymous  last week threatened to carry out the attacks if Israel’s bombardment  continued, saying: “Cease and desist from your terror upon the innocent people  of Palestine or you will know the full and unbridled wrath of Anonymous. And  like all the other evil governments that have faced our rage, you will NOT  survive it unscathed.”

Over the weekend, Israeli finance minister Yuval Steinitz said that Israel  had fought off 44 million cyber attacks on government websites, launched from  all over the world. However, he claimed the government had foiled the attempts  of the hackers in all but one case, saying that its sites were all mirrored and  could be replaced within minutes.

Anonymous, though, says  it’s been much for successful than that. It claims to have taken down nearly  700 public and private websites, including those of the foreign ministry and the  Bank of Jerusalem, and to have captured the details of more than 5,000 Israeli  officials.

It’s now promising the release of another document twice as large.

It’s also posted a statement denying that its activities amount to  terrorism, and pointing out that the group has always been opposed to physical  violence.

“Pro-Israeli groups throughout the world have grown from a foundation of  Israeli/US propaganda and lies. They arbitrarily dismiss the apartheid system of  racial segregation and oppression imposed by the Israeli government on the  Palestinian people,” it says.

“The fact of the matter is, in the eyes of the media, only the United States  and its allies are capable of labeling another state or organization as a  terrorists.”
