‘Kuwait Hackers’ hijack several Israeli websites

Team Kuwait Hackers" shut down sites for the Israel Scouts and Israeli gap-year programs.

A number of Israeli websites were hacked over the weekend by a group that calls itself Team Kuwait Hackers. Later Saturday, the site showed a message in Arabic with a picture of a Koran, as well as the message: “TeaM KuWaiT HaCkErS – HaCkErS eV!L.”

Debbie Goldsmith, a director at the site Aardvark Israel, said that on Saturday night, instead of offering explanations about gap-year programs in Israel, the site showed “a countdown and a clickable button, accompanied by eerie music. It sounded like Muslim prayers.”
