Israeli firms are still being targeted as part of a widespread cyberattack being attributed to Iranian hackers calling themselves Pay2Key, with a new victim being revealed over the weekend. The attack has already seen at least 80 companies targeted, including Israel’s largest defense contractor, and has prompted the formation of a group of Israeli cyber-vigilantes who are vowing to mount a counteroffensive.
