Gaza Getting Hit with Millions of Cyber Attacks

On Sunday, Israel admitted that they are currently the target in a mass cyber war. Since Israel began a major air attack campaign against Gaza, Israel said they’ve fought off over 44 million cyber attacks on their government websites.

The anonymous cyber-attack group was able to bring down dozens of government websites as well as a major bank.

Comments from Israeli Finance Minister, Yuval Steinitz, stated:
“All the attacks were thwarted except for one, which targeted a specific website that was down for six or seven minutes.”

 

Steinitz also stated that the Israel government is now waging a war on a “second front” in regards to the cyber attacks.
An Israeli ministry spokesman stated that the majority of the cyber attacks have come from Israel and the Palestinian territories.

“The ministry’s computer division will continue to block the millions of cyber attacks,” Steinitz said. “We are enjoying the fruits of our investment in recent years in developing computerised defence systems.”

Both sides in the Gaza conflict, but particularly Israel, are embracing the social media as one of their tools of warfare.
