Muslim hackers, mostly from Turkey, have been breaking into many Israeli and Jewish websites, displaying violent photos and anti-Semitic slogans.
Sunday morning they attacked the Chabad network of sites in the ‘Chabad She’al Attar’ group, which runs websites for hundreds of Chabad Houses in Israel and around the world.
Rabbi Yossi Mor Yosef, director of ‘Chabad She’al Attar,’ reported that the hackers managed to infiltrate the sites of some 20 Israeli Chabad Houses this morning, posting gruesome photos including some of Palestinian children killed in Operation Cast Lead.
The hackers are very sophisticated, and they managed to get into large, secure Internet sites.
“It ‘s evident that no site is completely safe from their attacks,” an Internet expert reported. “The fact that they could get into ‘Chabad She’al Attar,’ which is a very secure site, proves this.”
Efforts to repair the damage are almost complete.
Mor Yosef added that he is asking legal advice on whether he may file a formal police complaint.
