OpIsrael Mossad Website breached, Person Details of over 30,000 Agents Leaked by Anonymous

Several online hackavist groups have joined their forces against Israel by attacking the official website of Israel Secret Intelligence Service Mossad http://mossad.gov.il  by distributed denial of service attack and claiming to leak personal information of over 30,000 Israeli officials from military, police, politicians and employees within the agency. 

OpIsrael Mossad Website breached

The groups that took part in the attack were Sector404, Anonymous and RedHack, where Sector404 initiated distributed denial of service attack while Anonymous and RedHack breached into the site, leaking highly sensitive information on Twitter and Google Docs.

Leaked data contains personal details such as IDs, emails, full names, Zip codes, phone numbers, cities and states where the agents live or stationed.

Since the data is leaked, it is hard to keep it online, as it has been reported and deleted by authorities. As for now, the leaked data can be downloaded from below given links.

The attack was conducted under the flag of #OpIsrael, which was started in 2012 against the Israeli bombing of Palestinian territory

Earlier, I had reported that hackers of the world have joined their forces against Israel under the banner of #OpIsrael on 7/04/2013, for now there are still some days in restarting the operation yet today’s attack gives us the glimpse of what can be done on 7th April 2013.

UPDATE to clarify that the data leak is not directly linked to the DDOS attack launched on the Mossad website.

UPDATE: An Israeli current affair and news website MAKO has said that after examining the data, it has been found that these are the details of 35 thousand Mossad agents.

NOTE: The translation of MAKO article was done with Google Translator, hence errors can be part of it.

However, officials at Mossad said that at this very moment, they will not comment on this matter nor the Prime Minister of Israel.
