The Saudi hacker going by the username "0xOmar", has disseminated a third file containing Trojan horse malware, Israel Radio reported Friday.

The file reportedly contains no new information and can damage computers that run it.

On Thursday the hacker released almost 11,000 new Israeli credit card numbers and personal contact details, following the publication of around 15,000 numbers earlier this week.
