Anti-Israel hackers had succeeded in bringing down temporarily the website of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and the site of the Likud party, the Avnet information security company said Tuesday morning.
"The [PMO's] site is suffering from an attack on its connection between the database and the web server," Avnet's Ronni Becher said. "At this stage we don't know how the attack was carried out exactly, and what can be done to defend against it. Overnight, we saw dozens of attempts to hack and attack Israeli websites. Much information was released online, but most of it does not represent a real achievement, as it is old content that has not been updated," he added.
