Haaretz: Israeli hackers with the group IDF-Team have successfully launched another attack in the ongoing cyberwar between hackers in Isreal and Saudi Arabia. IDF-Team hit the websites of both the Saudi Stock Exchange (Tadawul) and the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX). They were able to halt trading on the Tadawul exchange and delay trading on ADX.

The Israelis said the move was a response to a “pathetic” Saudi attack on the websites for Israel’s stock exchange and airline. They warned that if Saudi attacks continue, they will “move to the next stage and paralyze websites for a period of two weeks to a month.”
