Cyberattacks strike Israeli banks as Iran celebrates Quds Day

A group called "Anonymous Sudan" took responsibility for coordinated cyberattacks on Israeli banks and the Israel Post.

Israel’s National Cyber Directorate announced Friday afternoon that it had identified and blocked several attacks on websites of Israeli banks. The directorate explained the attackers tried to overwhelm the sites and make them crash.

"Thanks to the banks' strong cyberdefenses, the websites continue to be live and operational, barring the occasional interruptions," noted a statement by the directorate, explaining that the attacks targeted the customer-facing pages of the banks’ website, not their internal core systems.
