The personal information of over 7 million Israelis could be at risk. It has been denounced by the Times of Israel. A hacker named Sangkancil claimed has hacked the CITY4U website, used by local authorities in Israel to process payments such as property taxes, fines and utility bills, stealing the data. Then, he put them on sale, writing that “This is my first surprise for the Jewish new year. Enjoy!”. The National Cyber Directorate is investigating the claims and the samples posted on Telegram and online hacking forums. If they would be valid, the hack would be one of the most severe breaches of privacy in Israel’s history.
