The #OpIsrael is destined to make the history, for the first time a collective decided to conduct a large-scale cyber attack against a state, despite the campaign started a few months ago it has reached its peak on 7th April when various organizations of hacktivists targeted Israele Web sites with powerful DDoS attacks and in some cases defacing them and stolen related data.
The information about the effects of the attacks is conflicting, the majority of security experts sustains that the operation is failed and caused no serious problems, but what is the point of view of Anonymous and what is the amplitude of the attacks according the popular collective?
Anonymous just released a complete damage report on #OpIsrael and its economic impact and on many sites is available the complete list of stricken websites, following the data provided by Anonymous:
The following list includes latest confirmed tango downs, hacks, defaces, docks, hijacks, database leaks & releases, deletes out of the internet, admin takeovers etc. And these are only a little part of the affected website.
