By Anne Sewell     Nov 21, 2012 in Internet
It was recently reported that the prominent hacker group Anonymous had leaked the personal information of 5,000 Israeli officials. Yesterday the social media of Israel's Deputy Prime Minister Silvan Shalom was filled with pro-Palestinian messages.
ZCompanyHackingCrew has claimed responsibility for the cyber attack against the Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube accounts of Israeli Deputy Premier Silvan Shalom. The group hacked the accounts and filled the pages with pro-Palestine status updates.
They also claim to have hacked Shalom's email account and to have extracted personal email, documents and contacts. Hackers have announced plans to release these documents shortly.

In the Twitter feed, the hacktivists call for protests against "unjust war and occupation," and asked, "Who can bare [sic] to see the horror, the deaths of children and innocent people trying to protect their occupied land?"
