Anonymous has once hacked Mossadon in its going campaign against Israeli forces, this time by releasing thousands of names, ID numbers, email addresses and geographic data allegedly corresponding to Israeli politicians, IDF officers and even Mossad agents.

Dubbed “#OpIsrael” on Twitter, various collectives of the amorphous Anonymous community are targeting official Israeli web domains, evidently causing intermittent disruption to the official website of spy agency Mossad via a self-described “sophisticated DDoS” attack.

The Mossad site was rendered inactive during the morning hours and was only back in service toward noon. While no statement was available from official Israeli authorities, Autonomous announced that they had obtained a document with thousands of top secret information which would gradually be uploaded into the internet.

The data was released by a hacker team going by the name of “The Red Hack,” a Turkish group, while the direct denial-of-service attack targeted at Mossad was attributed to another group operating under the moniker “Sektor 404.”

Anonymous previously threatened to erase the Jewish state from the worldwide web. The hacktivist group launched the first ‘OpIsrael’ cyber-attacks during Israel’s ‘Pillar of Defense’ operation against Gaza last November.
