Israeli hackers reportedly got into ISIS networks and found they were building laptop bombs

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) researchers use advanced modeling and simulation equipment as they work on the DHS Control Systems Security Program (CSSP).

Israeli government hackers broke into the computer networks of ISIS bomb makers months ago and uncovered the terror group’s plans to build laptop bombs that could get through airport X-ray machines, according to a new report in The New York Times.

The Department of Homeland Security in March implemented a ban on electronic devices larger than a cell phone from being carried onto aircraft originating from 10 countries in Africa and the Middle East. A DHS fact sheet said terrorists were trying to smuggle explosives in “various consumer items.”
