During May 6-12, almost 20 DDoS attacks on state bodies were carried out in Ukraine
Israeli web sites took damage due to cyber attacks last week. Labs and research centres working on a vaccine against coronavirus suffered as well, Jerusalem Post reports.
"Hundreds of Israeli websites were the target of a cyberattack on Thursday morning, their home pages being replaced with an anti-Israel video and message in Hebrew and broken English: “The countdown of Israel destruction has begun since a long time ago [sic].”
The bottom of the page credited a group called “Hackers_Of_Savior” for the attack. The page title was changed to “Be Ready for a Big Surprise” in Hebrew. Visitors to the sites were asked to allow access to their cameras", reads the article.
The attacks attempted to affect the development of the vaccine. However, these attempts failed. No data were stolen due to the attacks.
Jerusalem Post also stated that other labs reported similar attacks worldwide, including those based in the U.S. and England. Some blamed Russia and China for these acts.
Earier, Israeli scientists claimed they managed to find anti-bodies that actively combat Covid-19 in the body of an infected individual, and may be used to create the vaccine.
