How Israel Police computers were hacked

“The cyberwar is already here, and Israel apparently lost the first round. After a suspicious file was found to have been circulating on police computers, the department decided to take all its computers offline last Thursday – and as of Sunday, full Internet connectivity had not yet been restored.

What’s worse, said Roni Bachar, head of Israeli security firm Avnet, is that police servers and computers may have been compromised for as much as a week. ‘It was only late Wednesday night that police realized what happened and ordered that computers be taken offline. Apparently the virus was also distributed to other government departments.’”
