Israeli hackers: We'll knock down major Arab websites daily

January 18, 2012 16:15

Israeli hackers who brought down two major Arab financial websites this week said they would continue online attacks "every day" in the near future.

The hackers, who call themselves 'IDF Team,' told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday that their next targets will be websites in the Arab world that house government portals, airline websites, stock markets, and banks.

IDF Team launched an attack on the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency and the Abu Dhabi Stock Exchange on Tuesday, in retaliation to a distributed denial of service attack on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and El Al on Monday.

"Our next steps will be taken slowly... the message we wish to pass is that we are not frightened to retaliate and we won't be frightened of continuing with the attacks," an IDF Team member told The Post.
