Hacker publishes third file of Israeli credit card details; Israeli bank warns file may contain virus
Bank Leumi says the file contains the same credit card information revealed earlier this week, warns that it should not be downloaded as it may contain spyware.
A third file containing hacked credit card details of Israelis was posted on the internet on Friday.
The new file, published in the PasteBin website, contains information from the same credit cards that was revealed earlier this week.
Bank Leumi warned that the current file might contain a Trojan horse and that people should refrain from downloading it.
This latest publication was not the work of Saudi hacker xOmar 0, but another individual, who used the information contained in the files published earlier.
In a message, the perpetrator identifies himself as hacker “X,” and says he belongs to Group-XP, which xOmar 0 also belongs to. It is still not clear whether the same person was responsible for the first two files that were published earlier this week.
xOmar 0 responded on Friday evening, saying that this was not the list that he has in his hands. “My list contains details of 1.1 million credit cards, and has not been updated since Thursday. I don’t publish viruses, and I don’t know the person who published this list,” he said.
xOmar 0 said earlier this week that he had revealed information including credit card details, personal addresses, names, phone numbers and ID numbers of individuals listed on the website, One.co.il.
Israeli credit card companies said Monday that the list is repetitive and only includes 14,000 Israelis.
They said they had blocked all the cards on the list, and will return customers their money should any purchases be made on the cards.
People who visited One’s website on Monday were redirected to a page on pastebay.com, where a message by a hacker who identified himself as xOmar 0 suggested visitors download a linked file containing a database of Israelis and their personal information.
The file included a number of lists with the details of tens of thousands of people. One of the lists included what the hackers termed 65 Zionists, who purchased products from a website called Judaism. Another list included the details of 500 people who donated to rabbis.
