Israel will 'retaliate' against credit card thieves

Written by Andre Yoskowitz (Google+) @ 07 Jan 2012 16:37 User comments (23)

Israel will 'retaliate' against credit card thieves Israeli officials have vowed to retaliate against "Saudi" hackers that stole and posted credit card info on over 20,000 Israeli citizens.
The officials say they will respond to the cyber-attacks in the same way they respond to "violent terrorist acts."

"Such cyber-attacks are a breach of sovereignty comparable to a terrorist operation, and must be treated as such," added Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon. "Israel has active capabilities for striking at those who are trying to harm it, and no agency or hacker will be immune from retaliatory action."

Earlier in the week, an allegedly Saudi hacker with the pen name OxOmar began leaking info stolen from an attack on One.co.il, the largest sports site in Israel. The hackers redirected users to a new site where their login info and other personal data could be stolen. OxOmar, part of the team "Group-XL" says they have credit card details, including expiration dates and security codes listed on the back of the cards, social security numbers, names, addresses, phone numbers and more.

So far, about 20,000 valid credit card numbers have been released, but banks have been shutting them down and there are apparently only hundreds of dollars in fraudulent charges, to date.

Despite the politically charged nature of the hackers claiming they are from Saudi Arabia, many reports now claim OxOmar is really a 19-year-old Mexican national.

Israel is the worse bunch of people you'd want chasing you down.

They kidnap people and ship you to Isreal and arrest you there, from any country in the world.

They have done that for many decades with the Nazi's that tried to run away.

To this very day they still chase them down even though they are around 70 to 90 years old.

Illiterate? Are you joking? I admit I may not be completely up to date on my Israeli history, but don't be silly. I have since caught up on it after seeing his post, though, just wasn't quite sure if it was true at the time.

Again guys, leave your name calling, politics, religion, tucked firmly in your own asses... this is not the forum.

Every side of the globe has their own feelings & stories of history written to favor whichever side that happens to be telling it that day.

Become politicians of your own right & piss & moan on the floors of NATO if that's what you want, this isn't the place.

Sentiment equally shared, nor would I want the SEALs, DELTA, The Foreign Legion, the elite Spetsnaz or methed out Taliban soldiers after having watched a complete set of Girls Gone Wild either.

I have not heard of a country that does not share Israel's view; hackers who steal and release citizen's private data are terrorists and should be dealt with accordingly.
The difference is; Israel can, and will, make good on their threat.

However, this kind of candy assed , school yard politics is what causes things to get wildly out of hand. Sometimes you really do need to let the principle take the paddle to school bully's ass & wear the tar out of him. If he doesn't... THEN go off the reservation & wax him. Doing crap like this undermines the process.

Gosh, I don't know...
Now, seems to me, when dealing with a terrorist, a shot across the bow of blackmail might work without resorting to the multiple nastier tools at one's disposal...
...just saying...

Well, yeah that too... but when you get the banks involved, that's money & when money people get involved 'they' think the rules don't apply to "them". THAT'S when all the rules of engagement start to really get muddled & feeling really get enraged, lined drawn in the sand, blah, blah, blah...

It is fairly widely known. They have kidnapped several persons for trial. It might be a rude awakening for the hackers to wake up on an plane headed for Israel.

Even with Google translate, we're all a bit lost here. Despite, if it's a political comment/quote; leave it on that site. Unless it has something to do with solving the case of either side hacking the other's server security it has no place here. Not to mention the fact this forum has gone cold for over 30 days.

Didn't realize it was a spamming effort, but I didn't want to be a 'report' whiner either... You know, self educate before pissing in somebody's pool.
