Anonymous open letter to and cyber-attack on Israeli government

By Anonymous – 5 Nov 2011

Websites of IDF, Mossad, Shin Bet security service and government ministries crash following hacking group’s threat to retaliate for Gaza flotilla interception

It appears that Anonymous carried out a major cyber-attack against Israeli government websites, a day after posting an “open letter” video directed at the Israeli government in response to yesterday’s interception and take-over, in international waters, of two boats heading to Gaza. Today (6 November 2011) Haaretz reports that IDF, Mossad, Shin-Bet, and several other Israeli government websites are currently inaccessible. Watch video for an accurate and sophisticated political statement.
