Ghost Squad Hacker’s once again back with another #OpIsrael operation. The official website of Israeli Prime Minister office (pmo.gov.il) and The Bank of Israel (bankisrael.gov.il) were taken down by Ghost Squad Hackers on Sunday. They conducted a DDos (Distributed Denial of Services) attack on these sites. Ghost Squad exploited Denial of Service flaw in PMO’s website.
S1ege, GSH’s leader, told HackRead:
“We found a denial of service exploit on Israeli prime minister office website and it’s been down for 72 hours and counting.”
S1ege also confirmed that the attack was conducted in support of Palestine and plans are to come up with more attacks to raise awareness regarding the Palestinian issue.
“We the GSH are not against anyone but injustice and it’s obvious what’s going on in Palestine is injustice and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is a war criminal, said S1ege.”
