The Bank of Israel reassured customers Tuesday that they would not bear responsibility for fraudulent use of their cards, following the online exposure of credit card details Monday night.

The details of some 15,000 Israeli credit cards were posted on the One sports website by an international group of hackers. The bank clarified that victims of the hacking incident would be protected under the Debit Card Law.

The Banking Supervision Department also advised customers, "to examine the charges on their credit card statements on on the websites of the credit card companies in order to identify transactions that they did not conduct." They urged customers to swiftly report any problems that they identified to the credit card companies.
