Anonymous Algeria, a self-proclaimed hacktivist group, has reportedly compromised the databases of the Israel Police and the Israel-based firm, Center Awnings.
In their recent post, the hacker collective claimed the cyberattack on Israel Police along with a message stating that they could infiltrate several Israeli police devices and access sensitive files successfully.
The other post, asserting responsibility for the Center Awnings cyberattack, stated that the group had successfully breached Center Awnings, Israel’s premier firm for shading solutions, from planning to import and marketing.
The hacker collective’s messages, as seen on the dark web, clearly emphasize their allegiance to Palestine, suggesting their actions are in support of Palestine during the ongoing conflict between Hamas and Israel.
However, it is crucial to note that the alleged cyberattacks on Israel Police and Center Awnings, are yet to be officially confirmed, but raise concerns about cybersecurity and the potential implications of this attack.
Cyberattack on Israel Police, Center Awnings: The Hackers’ Proclamation
Following their alleged cyberattack on the Israel Police, the hackers left a message alongside the purportedly stolen data which read, “After intensive efforts, our Anonymous Algeria team successfully infiltrated several Israeli police devices and recovered a multitude of sensitive files.
The message, indicating support towards Palestine, further read, “This endeavor was in response to intense airstrikes targeting the people of Gaza, where dozens of civilians were killed without reason. Our group will disseminate these various files to the world. Free Palestine, we stand with you. We are Anonymous Algeria.”
In a subsequent message, the hackers asserted that they had additionally breached Center Awnings, a foremost Israeli enterprise focused on the planning, import, and promotion of shading products.
The message also echoed their support for the Palestinian cause, stating, “We have successfully hacked Center Awnings, the leading company in Israel in planning, importing, and marketing all shading solutions. Free Palestine, we stand with you. We are Anonymous Algeria.”
It’s important to note that the authenticity of the hackers’ claims of the cyberattack on Israel Police and Center Awnings data breach are yet to be verified.
The Cyber Express has contacted the mentioned organizations for verification of the asserted claims. As of now, no response has been received.
It is essential to note that such claims can often be a part of a broader narrative and may not always reflect the actual extent of the breach or the information that was obtained.
It remains to be seen how the Israeli authorities and cybersecurity experts respond to this claim and whether the data posted by Anonymous Algeria is genuine.
