JERUSALEM -- The Jewish Agency's website was attacked by unknown hackers.

The wave of attacks began Septembers 7 and continued through the weekend, the organization said in a statement released Tuesday.

The attacks, which made the web site temporarily unavailable for short times, came from across the globe, including Russia, Hungary, Saudi Arabia, Brazil and Austria, according to the Jewish Agency.

After concern that data stored on the site could be affected, the Chief Information Officer of the Jewish Agency, Dov Yahav, on September 8 decided to shut down the web site to external users.

After upgrading the site’s security capabilities, it returned to normal operation on Sunday.
