A group of ultra-orthodox hackers, shocked by the obscenity of some porn sites, has launched an internet campaign in a bid to cause such sites to crash. The hackers, already named at some internet forums the "ultra-orthodox sex commando," or the "ultra-orthodox electronic underground," focus their efforts at this point on Hebrew sites.
The first target was the Hebrew porn site www.sexhack.tk – a mid-sized, not very popular site that features sex videos.
Those who tried logging in to the site found instead a photo of the Lubavitch Rabbi with the text: "We, the religious-net group, hacked into this site and erased all obscenities. The other sites we plan on bringing down are listed below."
40 porn sites in Israel
The hackers erased the explicit content and wrote that "the holy kabbalah warns that the sin of spilling sperm in vain is the cause for most diseases and misfortune!"
As of today there are about 40 porn sites operating in Israel and about 20 sex-related forums. The group tried sabotaging other Israeli porn site with little success so far.
The ultra-orthodox website "Shofar" was hacked into several days ago. The religious content was replaced with anti-censorship and anti-religious items.
It is unclear if the two incidents are related.
