The Arab faction of Anonymous has published a list of around 1,300 account details they’ve allegedly stolen from Israeli users.
According to Haaretz
, Avnet Security Systems has studied the data leak, made of email addresses and clear text passwords, and confirmed that many of the accounts are active. However, it’s uncertain what website they have been stolen from.
Experts believe that the target may be a forum or a commercial website. In many cases the passwords are actually phone numbers and other identification data.
An Israeli website informs that many of the accounts are linked to Facebook and others report that there are already signs of misuse.
The incident seems to be a continuation of the cyber battle between Arab and Israeli hackers. At the beginning of 2012, the details of 5,000 credit cards belonging to Saudi and non-Saudi card holders were leaked
online by a hacker from Israel.
