I've Been Thinking:
A hacker posted lists of Israeli voters on Saturday. The hacker claimed to have hacked 6,000,000 people and their details from what they claimed are current voter rolls.
The hacker was part of a larger, annual, mass hack attack against Israel called OpIsrael. It takes place ever year on April 7th and has been an annual event since 2011. Just coincidentally, tis is an election year and the election is today.
The name of the hacker is DarkCoder.
The timing of the hack is telling.
DarkCoder tweeted about the attack on Saturday, just days before Israelis go to the polls. Included in the tweet was a screenshot of a list of many, many names and ID numbers.
But really, it is doubtful that the system was hacked. More likely the list was copied from a previous hack. That information is on line and accessible.
