Looks like  Israel is angry over two hacking attacks in one week on Israeli credit card owners. Israel has said that ”it will now respond to the cyber-attacks in the very same way, it responds to violent “terrorist” acts after the credit card details of thousands of its citizens were published online.

Last week it was a hacker who claims to be a Suadi who hacked into Israeli sports website, hacked the Credit card and leaked the list over the internet. The credit card companies say that at least 6,000 valid cards have been exposed.

According to some media reports the hacker who hacking name is OxOmar is actually a 19-year-old who lives in Mexico.

Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon has said that ” Such cyber-attacks are “a breach of sovereignty comparable to a terrorist operation, and must be treated as such”

“Israel has active capabilities for striking at those who are trying to harm it, and no agency or hacker will be immune from retaliatory action,” he added, without giving further details.

According to BBC news, Israel already knew that the hacker is based in Mexico.
