including expiry date and CVVs (the three digits on the back of the
card), full names, addresses, and telephone numbers, according to a
Globes report. The file also contains e-mail addresses and passwords.
Additionally, e-mail account passwords have been verified as genuine,
allowing anyone with the information to break into inboxes without
difficulty, according to the report.
The hacker, from "group-xp" released a
statement indicating that he will release the rest of the database which
contains a further 60,000 credit cards. He also threatened to release other sensitive information, such as "data I have downloaded from Israeli military contractor companies... I'm thinking to start doing it from an Israeli company which creates jammers and eavesdropping devices."
The message, posted on the 'uncensored text hosting' website Pastebin,
contained numerous anti-Israel and anti-Semitic references. The hacker
repeatedly referred to the "Zionist lobby" and the "Jewish lobby"
throughout the post.
The Bank of Israel on Tuesday reassured customers that they would not bear responsibility for fraudulent use of their cards.
