ISRAEL FOILS SYRIAN CYBERATTACK ON WATER SYSTEM, SECURITY EXPERT CLAIMS

The Washington Times on May 25, 2013, published an AP report on an Israeli security expert saying Syrian hackers tried to break into the computers of the water system of the city of Haifa. Excerpts below:

Speaking at a lecture in the southern city of Beersheba, Yitzhak Ben Yisrael, Israel’s former cyber security adviser, said that a group calling itself “The Syrian Electronic Army” had launched the failed attack two weeks ago.

The attack took place just after Israel bombed a military complex near Damascus. Israel refuses to comment on the strike but officials at the time said Iranian missiles set for Hezbollah were hit. Syria has said that it would keep all options on the table for its response.
