Submission + - Mounting Hacking in Israel as Conflict Escalates (guardian.co.uk)

An anonymous reader writes: The Guardian reports 44 million "hacking attempts" have been made against Israeli websites since Wednesday, when the bombardments of Gaza began. The Anonymous "collective" have released a message, on Sunday, claiming responsibility, among other things, for erasing the databases of nearly 700 private and public websites that they deemed to be "in Israeli cyberspace", including that of the Bank of Jerusalem.

It seems the exagerated number stems from DoS attempts, not proper hacking/cracking/wizardry/whateveryouwannacallit. Still, it's certainly done some damage to some unprepared businesses.
