UNIT 8200, MEET HAMAS HACKERS
Unit 8200 in the Jewish military does the hacking and code-writing and are quite good. It created and sent a virus that would infect mobile phones of Gazans when they answered the “warning: you are about to be bombed to death” text messages it so generously sends to Gazans, mostly to harvest electronic human-network information due to the ineffectiveness of its informants and intelligence of late. It also hacked into Hamas television on 16 July. But apparently this is not the first time Hamas (and other) hackers have infiltrated the systems of the Jewish military state. Hamas hacked into and took over the broadcast of Channel 10 on 14 July. On 15 July, the Times of Israel reported that it had sent text messages to citizens in the Jewish military state about current (real or fictive) attacks and dangers. And it continues in the cyber-psychological-war.

Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, yesterday penetrated the messaging system of the Benjamin settlement council near Ramallah, in central West Bank, and sent threatening message to the settlers, Israeli media revealed.
One message said: “To the Israeli public: your government claimed yesterday it had stopped firing but without agreeing to our conditions. It was believed that we will hurry to ceasefire, but what happened is the opposite. We retaliated and struck everywhere from Dimona in the south until Haifa in the north while you hid in your shelters like rats. We warn your government of the consequences if it does not agree to our terms, because the whole of Israel will remain a legitimate target for our fire. The Izz Ad-Din Al-Qassam.”
Following the arrival of the messages, some of the settlers replied using abusive insults and contacted the settlements’ council which investigated the incident.
According to a statement released by the council, Hamas penetrated the messaging system and therefore the council has decided to stop the service while it counters the penetration, Israel’s Channel 7 reported.
