Hitler would be proud. From Middle East Dispatches:
* Israel is bracing for a "potentially crippling" cyberattack against the country's major companies and websites on April 7, the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day. The planned assault is organized by the hacktivist group Anonymous and other anti-Israeli groups with "the intent of erasing Israel from the Internet."
* Last week, the three groups claimed they breached the Mossad's mainframe, accessed classified information and leaked the online personal details of over 34,000 of the intelligence agency's officers and agents worldwide. The Mossad did not comment on the matter.
* In February, the Israel Defense Forces set up an official cyber war room, meant to improve the IDF's ability to thwart "the constant attempts" to hack into the IDF's computer systems. The IDF officially defined cyber warfare as the fifth arena of warfare, alongside land, sea, air and space.
