● Reflecting upon the Israeli cyber disaster.
Multiple networks of organizations, SCADA networks, ~5K IP cameras were successfully compromised / accessed pertaining to Israel 🇮🇱 by Pro Palestinian hackers from primarily, Indonesia 🇮🇩, Malaysia 🇲🇾, Iran 🇮🇷, Palestine 🇵🇸 and Anonymous Group (selective members), Japan 🇯🇵 in addition to others.
Hundreds of websites were also hacked, defaced and their data stolen as posted in t.me/ckure
The call for hack was by a hacktivist group asking the world 🌎 for support. We documented it here: https://t.me/cKure/7884
IMHO: The attacks were mostly conducted by school kids and college students as per prelim analysis and were non state actors.
Reason for hacktivist activity (a very long story in a nushell): In 1948, the Palestinian land was divided ➗ between locals (Arabs Muslims + Christians) who were displaced by Jewish zionists coming (rather returning after generations / millenia of diaspora) and created a state with the help of British and allied powers who controlled the land after the fall of ottoman caliphate in 1924.
However, after 1948 division by UN where half was given to new settlers from Europe primarily, Israel after its creation violated UN articles and annexed 95% of palestine.
And the 5% of palestine is also being taken away. Should be in a decade or 2 🤔 that the remaining part of Palestine is captured and residents either killed, exiled or transformed into citizens with limited privileges; as has happened so far.
The media: Even though hundreds of websites were taken down, defaced and social media accounts (WhatsApp and Facebook pages) hacked. And GBs of databases leaked online. The mainstream media and even search engines fail to show anything meaningful about this campaign. In not sure if my Google hacking (searching) skills have diminished.
Either Israel 🇮🇱 has one of the weakest cybersecurity situation or the attack was extraordinary. I have significant intel to believe the former than later.
We have asked Israel to respond to this situation. We will update as and when we receive a reply (and allowed for public sharing).
