Hackers claim attacks on Israel's infrastructure, including Israeli airline Israir, with allegedly confidential and internal documents being leaked online.
On November 16th, a threat actor codenamed SiegedSec posted on their communication channel that they had allegedly compromised Israir Airlines and leaked the company's internal and confidential documents online. Headquartered in Tel Aviv, the airline operates domestic and international flights to Europe and Asia.
SiegedSec shared a screenshot that looks like a dashboard of the Israir management platform containing multiple documents. In its post, the threat actor also shared a link to 1.4GB of data allegedly belonging to the company.
The leaked data includes what seems to be Israir’s reports, legal documents, licenses, certifications, insurance documents, flight permits, and internal procedures. The airline has yet to respond to a request for comment at the time of writing this article.
The same threat actor claimed to have compromised Israeli government devices. “We've disconnected many devices such as alarms, temperature sensors, etc ^^ i hope Israel's Ministry of Agriculture appreciates our gift <3,” SiegedSec wrote.
The gang also claims to have “affected” the Shufersal supermarket chain’s systems. Shufersal operates 395 branches in Israel and has 16,600 employees.
The company and the Ministry of Agriculture have yet to respond to a request for comment.
On November 14th, another threat actor codenamed Abnaa AlSaada, possibly from Yemen, claimed that they took over control of aluminum manufacturing company Profal’s operations. The threat actor shared screenshots of what seems to be dashboards for operating production lines in the factory on their Telegram channel.
Cybernews were not able to independently verify the claims. At the time of writing, the company’s website was down. Profal has not yet responded to a request for comment.
