List of Air Force pilots' families revealed online

Public able to access website that lists names of Air Force base's residents due to error in configuration; website blocked until details removed

The website of the Ramat David Air Force base posted a list of phone numbers of the families who live on the base, Ynet reported on Saturday.


The Air Force usually keeps the identity of pilots and aircrew members secret.


The phonebook, as well a list of services provided on the base and its kindergartens were accessible to anyone who entered the website. Even the details of the base's snake catcher were provided.

Following Ynet's inquiry, the Air Force blocked access to the website until the sensitive information is removed.


The IDF Spokesperson's Unit said, "The website is secure, and it is accessible only to those who have been authorized to log in. Part of the website was accessible to the public due to an error in configuration. The problem was addressed immediately."
