JERUSALEM/BOSTON Jan 26 (Reuters) – Hackers broke into an
Israeli defence ministry computer via an email attachment
tainted with malicious software that looked like it had been
sent by the country’s Shin Bet secret security service, an
Israeli cyber security firm said on Sunday.
Aviv Raff, chief technology officer at Seculert, said the
hackers earlier this month temporarily took over 15 computers,
one of them belonging to Israel’s Civil Administration that
monitors Palestinians in Israeli-occupied territory.
