WASHINGTON – Israelis commemorated Yom Hashoah, or the Day of Remembrance, on Monday. It's a national day of reflecting on the 6 million Jews lost in the Holocaust. But members of the hacking group Anonymous used the occasion to infiltrate some Israeli service and post anti-Israeli slogans on their websites.
The operation was dubbed “Op Israel.” The attack was quickly repelled and even a counter attack was launched on the site Anonymous had used to set up for the attack, reconfiguring it to play the Israeli national anthem.Host Rob Sachs spoke with Julie Ryan, an associate professor of engineering management and systems engineering at George Washington University, to look into this incident more and tease out what it says about the strength of Anonymous and Israel to engage in cyber warfare of this kind.
