Israel: There is a Ukrainian trace in a cyber attack on Palestinian officials


A recent cyber attack has been launched against officials of the Palestinian National Authority. Their goal is to hack mobile phones to gain access to personal data, eavesdropping on conversations and covertly connecting to video cameras.


This was reported by the Israeli publication "Maariv."

The fact of hacking and the Ukrainian trace was recently discovered by employees of Cybereason, a company operating in Israel. At least, it was such a statement that came from themselves. After analyzing the data, Israeli experts found a similarity of handwriting in organizing this attack with the actions of two Arabic-speaking hacker groups - MoleRATs and The Gaza Cybergang, which in the past used similar methods. They chose various targets for attacks, including objects of strategic importance in Israel.

Hackers used phishing sites that targeted victims using the Trump Peace Plan, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, or the Kassem Suleymani assassination.

Cybereason employees, as stated, managed to find out that Arab hackers used the spyware program Pierogi, created by developers from Ukraine. They managed to adapt this program for their own purposes. Israeli experts claim that the origin of this malicious product was determined by the use of the Ukrainian language in software codes.

      Andrei hi Most likely, traces of fat were found on the keyboards of computers. And, since it is not only not a halal product, but also not a kosher one ... all doubts were finally dispelled. lol

          Israeli cybersecurity experts say they have managed to prevent a major hacker attack on the Palestinian government

          They would also claim that they had prevented an attack on Hezbollah’s sites.

          Super.
          The Arab hacker used the freeware Ukrainian program.
          And then the Ukrainian trace?
          If a terrorist uses a rocket sold by Israel, will that mean an Israeli footprint?

            And why are you surprised. At the site of the downed Malaysian Boeing, the remains of the Ukrainian anti-aircraft missile produced back in the USSR were found. Since Russia is the legal successor of the Soviet Union, there is someone to blame. Everything is very simple, the logic is iron. lol

    Well, not the state of Ukraine, but the Ukrainians, several different things. or they believe that Ukraine, as a state, supported these actions. And how it will be with the Russian mafia, there is a gang of highlanders of Georgians (for example), but the former USSR, however, means the Russian mafia.

      They are good specialists in good deeds, admittedly. But apparently in Ukraine today you can’t feed your family with good deeds.

    The company, which has deep ties with both American and Israeli intelligence, Cybereason, recently modeled the situation regarding the upcoming 2020 elections. In her opinion, it will end with dozens of dead Americans, the abolition of the 2020 elections, the introduction of martial law and a surge of fear among the American population.

    As tools for disrupting the elections, not only lies and fabricated threats will be used, but also real sabotage in the field of critical infrastructure, consumer devices, and even vehicles.

    It should be remembered that the Cybereason company, which presented the scenario of the American apocalypse, is closely connected not only with the American intelligence services, but also with the Israeli military intelligence.

    Under such circumstances, it is important to understand the motives of these forecasts. After all, the implementation of this scenario will actually put an end to American democracy and transfer complete power over society to the state.

    Last November, key US officials deliberately indicated that US adversaries represented by Russia, China, Iran want to undermine our democratic institutions and influence public sentiment and government policies.

    Attackers will try to achieve their goals through various means, including social media campaigns, lead disinformation operations or conduct destructive cyber attacks on state and local infrastructure.

    Separately, it was added that "although at present we have no evidence of this, we continue to closely monitor any threats to US elections."

    Almost all “Russian hackers” are Ukrainian citizens of Washington and those Russian hackers whom Washington has stolen on vacation in different warm countries.

    As soon as Trump announced that dumplings would be jumping into their mouths in Palestine, the hackers immediately perked up.
