Talk about Anonymous
initiating the #OpSaveGaza
or Hamas hacking the satellite broadcast of an Israeli TV station, each and every attack was devastating
for the country. But now a senior officer of the IDF has blamed Iran for conudcting cyber attacks on Israel during Operation Protective Edge.
During the operation there were a number of significant cyber attacks directed at Israel’s Internet infrastructure, which the officer said were coordinated by Iran, according to Haaretz.
The officer went ahead to stress that the internal system of the military’s computers which is used for various operations was not under any sort of threat which proved to be grave. Protection and safety was of utmost concern and that is why certain steps were taken to ensure that this security is established. The interface that exists between the military software and the civilian Internet network was diminished in order to reduce the risk of hacking.
At this very same time, many cyber-attacks were carried out. These were primarily directed at the internet infrastructure of the Internet. The officer went ahead to claim that these attacks were mostly planned by the Iranian government
. Iran’s coordination was claimed in the following words,
“They made a very intense cyber effort during the operation unlike any we had seen before, in terms of its scope and the type of targets.”
Hackers have been claimed
to have penetrated into the official IDF blog and Twitter account and then tweeted a huge fabrication. This fabrication spoke that there was a threat of some radioactive seepage. This was when two rockets strike the Dimono nuclear reactor.
However the hackers who hacked IDF were from Syrian Electronic Army
not from any Iranian government funded group.
