Gov't websites back online; IBM component blamed for outage

The Internet sites of the IDF, Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) and Mossad were back online after being unavailable Sunday. The disruption to the websites took place two days after international hacker group Anonymous threatened to launch a cyber attack on Israel over the IDF interception of a flotilla to Gaza, but government had a different explanation Monday.
According to the Finance Ministry, an investigation revealed that the outage was caused by an IBM storage component and that government technicians and IBM employees had worked throughout the night to resolve the problem.
