Anonymous attacked 40 sites the government of Israel! #OpIsrael
After the Israeli army killing a military high command of Hamas on Wednesday (14), hackers affiliated with Anonymous began attacking websites Israeli retaliation, according to the New York Times.
The operation called #OpIsrael began at 6am (GMT) on Thursday (15) and was announced on the group's Twitter profile. To date, 40 sites in the country suffered attacks related to the army, the banks and airlines and Israeli security.
Also according to the New York Times, page Israeli army came to be replaced by an image of Gaza in flames, followed by the message: - Stop Bombing Gaza! Thousands of Israelis and Palestinians are passing sleepless nights, vulnerable and terrified.
To organize the operation, hackers recruited volunteers on Twitter and Pastebin, site frequently used by Anonymous to publish information about the attacks. Hackers used a relatively simple tool for action: a malicious link was sent to the site server. Once accessed, the program connected the server to a computer network, allowing traffic to slow until complete collapse.
