Arabic Hackers Infiltrated Israel’s Military NetworkCyber hackers are believed to have infiltrated the computer networks of the Israeli military, security researchers at Blue Coat Systems Inc. reported as quoted in Israel Hayom. According to the firm, the hackers were able to penetrate into associated networks of the IDF through a discreet espionage campaign. Trick emails prepackaged with attack software were sent to accounts registered on the servers. The attack on the Israeli military is just one instance of a wider cyber espionage effort being carried out across the Middle East. Researchers believe the four-month long campaign was most likely launched by Arabic speaking programmers since the default language setting in some of the programming tools was Arabic. Waylon Grange, the security researcher at Blue Coat who discovered the infiltrations, explained that most of the hackers’ software were comprised on pre-existing, widely accessible tools and software, such as remote access to the Poison Ivy Trojan.
