Pakistani hackers hack high-profile Israeli websites

Posted by: Agha Majid, Uploaded: 20th November 2012



Hackers from Pakistan have reportedly defaced numerous pages on high profile web-sites – majority of which are on ‘.co.il’ and ‘org.il’ domains and not everybody can see them – as it could be a DNS attack.

Some of the sites,  like MSN for instance, have their Israeli websites hosted on their own ‘.com’ domain – meaning that the hack won’t do much harm, however for others that’s not the case.

Here is a list of all the afflicted websites in alphabetical order:  Amazon UnboxBBC,BingCitibankCNNCoca ColaCokeIntelIntel AppUpIntel AtomLive 1Live 2Mastercard,Microsoft StoreMSNNBC UniPayPassPantenePhillipsSolar WindsPassport, and Xbox Ignite,Xbox FusionXbox 360Windows, and Windows Live.

This apparently has no connections with Anonymous, albeit the hackers seem to have the same motive.

The hackers also mock a statement made by Israeli Finance Minister Yuval Steinits who said in a recent press meet said, “44 million hacking attempts have been made on Israeli government Web sites since Wednesday and that so far only one was taken down, but was up and running after 10 minutes of downtime.”

“The ministry’s computer division will continue to block the millions of cyber attacks. We are enjoying the fruits of our investment in recent years in developing computerized defence systems,” he added.
