An international ring of Arab-Israeli hackers uncovered

The Israeli police’s cyber department has uncovered an international ring of Israeli Arab hackers who raised funds for use in terrorists and operated in eighteen countries. Arrests were carried out simultaneously in all these countries. The American FBI was part of the investigation. The Rishon Letzion court Wednesday issued arrest warrants and gag orders on the suspects’ identities. Two are brothers in their twenties who lived in Holon. They are charged with acquiring assets by criminal means, blocking computer operations and deleting incriminating data. A third suspect from Umm al-Fahm is accused of obtaining funds by fraudulent means and passing the money to terrorist groups to fund their operations.
