Hacker publishes 100,000 account details
Self-proclaimed Israeli hacker group leader allegedly releases emails, Facebook details of 100,000 Arabs
The self-proclaimed leader of the Israeli hackers, who calls himself Hannibal, claims to have published the Facebook and email account details of 100,000 Arabs, in his latest post on Pastebin.
"Hello, this is known as a hacker Hannibal keeps the state of Israel. I published until now hundreds of thousands of emails and Facebook accounts of Arabs.. Today I published another 100,000 accounts of Arabs. I post this 100k accounts list because I want show the my huge strength. The Arabs should learn a lesson and know not to mess with me. Jewish people named me as the general of Israel's hackers. I have about 30 million email accounts, 10 million bank accounts, 4 million credit cards of Arabs from all over the world," he said.
However, according to research by Cyberwarnews.info, only 7,650 of the accounts published by Hannibal have valid email addresses while approximately 6,320 are duplicate email addresses.
Hannibal has also apparently called off the hacking war with Saudi and the UAE, saying that hackers from Arab nations are no longer attacking Israel, so he is calling off the Israeli cyber-attacks.
"Because I noticed that lately the Arab hackers are gone, I declare cyber war termination. Israeli hackers, stop! Cyber war stops until further notice I will post again if they attack the State of Israel. If they appear again, I again come to save Israel. Trust me. I'll always be around. Thanks, Hannibal," read the Pastebin post.
Hannibal has released lists of approximately 60,000 email and Facebook account details on Pastebin since 13th January 2012, but many of these were fake accounts or duplicates.
