Following the release of thousands of Israeli credit card numbers by a Saudi hacker last week, an Israeli hacker claims he struck back. An Israeli, calling himself Omer Cohen, said Tuesday that he obtained and published the personal details and credit card numbers of hundreds of Saudi Arabian citizens.

Last week, Saudi hackers claimed to have published the credit card details of 400,000 Israelis. Credit card companies said only hundreds of authentic card numbers were published in reality.

The hackers published the list of cards, names and other personal details on the One sports website, which was hacked.

The hackers published a 30 megabyte file containing the details.
