An Algerian hacker going with the handle of ‘the key40’ has hacked and defaced total 49 Israeli websites.
The sites were left with not one but several partially deface pages and messages against Israel, favoring Palestinians, such as:
Hacked by The Key40 from Algeria, Israel = Just an illusion in your eyes who will be erased soon Inshallah. Palestine will be free.
Links of hacked sites along with their mirrors are available on Zone-h.
All targeted sites belong to private businesses such as medical clinics, web development, studios, real estate and malls.
After analyzing hacker’s Zone-h archive, it shows that he has been attacking Israeli sites since the beginning and so far has hacked and defaced hundreds of Israel based sites.
At the time of publishing this article, some sites were restored and some one taken offline.
