One of the Saudi Arabian hackers responsible for publishing details of some 15,000 Israeli credit cards threatened on Thursday to release the rest of data in his possession.

The hacker, going by the username '0xOmar' from 'group-xp' released a statement indicating that he will release the database which contains a further 60,000 credit cards.

The Bank of Israel on Tuesday reassured customers that they would not bear responsibility for fraudulent use of their cards.
