Why can't we all just get along?

According to
Israeli security solutions developer, Applicure Technologies, the number of hacking attempts against Israeli Websites has increased significantly since the IDF launched its bombing campaign of the Gaza strip.

"We're talking about Iranian organizations, some of which call themselves Communist, and organizations affiliated with Syria and Hezbollah. In contrast, during the Second Lebanon War in 2006, hackers were mostly kids from Morocco," said Applicure founder and CTO David Allouch.

Hackers aren't limiting their efforts to government sites, and are reportedly simply trying to crash as many sites as possible.
