The Avnet information security company, which set up a situation room to monitor cyber attacks on Israeli websites, said Sunday that so far, there have been a number of significant leaks of databases from websites, but that in general, the affected websites are small, and have not invested in basic security measures.

Roni Becher, who heads Avnet's cyber attack section, said, "It seems that these are simply quite basic attacks, that are not unusual in their complexity... and which suit amateur children."

He added that the website of the Yad Vashem Holocaust museum has come under a "fairly massive attack," adding that this is in line with a decision by anti-Israel hackers to strike near the start of Holocaust Memorial Day events.

The Yad Vashem website remains accessible to online visitors.
