Website Exposed Mossad Chief’s Personal Data to Lure Media Victims - Report

The two “white hat” hackers who discovered the website believe it was used to lure specific victims – presumably journalists – in order to collect their data in preparation for a future attack on their computers.

Israeli hackers have exposed a website that published personal data about high-ranking Israeli military and intelligence officials, a report by The Times of Israel says, citing Hadashot TV.

In particular, the website — the name of which remains undisclosed — has published personal details and pictures of the home and family of Mossad chief Yossi Cohen.

Avichai Adraee, the Arabic spokesperson for the Israeli Defense Forces, also had his personal data leaked via the website, the report says.

The website was reportedly advertised via social media in an apparent attempt to lure journalists, the report says. Any person visiting the website also had their personal data collected.

"As soon as you enter the site, you reach the main page, which already shows you photos of Yossi Cohen and Avichai Adraee, with pictures of the Mossad headquarters in the background," says Yuval Adam, one of the two computer security specialists who discovered the website and reported it to the National Cyber Authority, which launched an investigation, the report says.
