The online hacktivist going with the handle of AnonGhost has hacked and defaced a website belonging to an Israel based Defense Contractor ISPRA Israel Product Research Co. LTD. dealing with developing, manufacturing and marketing of non lethal devices for riot control, crowd management, anti terror equipment and police gear.
