Israel says Hamas tried to snare soldiers in World Cup cyber trap

Israel's military accused the Palestinian terror group Hamas on Tuesday of trying to hack the mobile phones of Israeli soldiers through a malicious World Cup score-tracking app and two bogus dating apps.


Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip and has fought several wars with Israel, declined comment.


The three Android apps, which have since been removed from the Google Play Store, were designed to infect troops' phones with data-stealing malware and turn on cameras and microphones for live spying, two Israeli military security officers said.
