The cyber war continues to claim more victims. After breaking into the websites of two hospitals, hackers simultaneously targeted the Dan Public Transportation company website, the Israel Festival website, the Cinematheque website and the website of the Haaretz newspaper on Wednesday.

 

Surfers who entered the Israel Festival website found the slogan "Free Palestine, death to Israel." A message in the other websites said that four more "Gilad Shalits" would be abducted and that "Jew = Nazi."

A spokesman for Tel Hashomer confirmed that a breach was detected by the system's security mechanisms, stressing that the cyber attack was foiled and that no harm came the site or its content.

 

Around noon Wednesday, the Assuta Medical Center reported a similar cyber attack, saying the hospital's website's firewall was able to successfully tackle the breach.

 

Dror Admon, who heads Assuta's Systems and Infrastructure department, told Ynet that "the hackers' attempts to breach the systems have failed. Patient information was not compromised."
