150,000 phone numbers, social networks such as Facebook, email accounts Gmail and Hotmail

This is the fourth attack by Anonymous on April 7th.

Anonymous Hackers Threaten Israel with ‘Electronic Holocaust’ on April 7th
In this news article (including a YouTube video), a man wearing a “Anonymous” mask threatens to take down critical Israeli servers and websites on April 7th of this year. The promise is to “erase” them from cyberspace. The threat seems to be in retaliation to what is going on with Palestine and the Gaza Strip.
One out of three of the top one million websites ranked by Alexa are “risky,” meaning the site is compromised, or is running vulnerable software that puts it at risk of being compromised, according to new findings by Menlo Security.The percentage of sites in a category that were running vulnerable software – for the top 15 website categories hovered mostly around roughly 20 percent.
Where aren’t we vulnerable? The war on drugs, the war on terrorism, most “wars” on anything dubbed by the public seem like they are somewhat in control by some entity. It’s starting to show that the war in the digital space has been around for a while, but is really only beginning to show the tip of it’s iceberg. The future will be interesting from this perspective.
