State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss said Wednesday that the economic department of his office had opened an initial investigation into the exposure of thousand of Israeli credit card numbers over the internet on Monday.

The details of some 15,000 Israeli credit cards were posted on the One sports website by an international group of hackers. The group targeted three credit card companies: Isracard, Leumi Card and Cal. The Bank of Israel clarified that victims of the incident would be protected under the Debit Card Law.
