Israel Bombed Cyber Hackers (That Is Historic, For Many Reasons)
Between the fake Nigerian princes and the endless computer passwords we need to create (one uppercase and lowercase letter, please), we have all wanted to bomb the hackers.
Last weekend, Israel did just that. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) claims to have flattened a building used by hackers from Hamas, which has already fired hundreds of rockets at Israel last week.
“We thwarted an attempted Hamas cyber offensive against Israeli targets,” tweeted the IDF Twitter site. “Following our successful cyber defensive operation, we targeted a building where the Hamas cyber operatives work. HamasCyberHQ.exe has been removed.”
