[ISN] Overseas hackers strike again: Israel Land Administration shuts down most of its web site
From: William Knowles (wkC4I.ORG)

The Israel Land Administration (ILA) was forced to close most of its
Internet site last Fridey, due to damage caused by hostile overseas
hackers. From now on and until further notice, there is therefore no
possibility of receiving the results of the ILAs new or previous
tenders dated after January 1998.
In contrast to the damage to tenders, other parts of the site
providing general information are still operating.
The damage caused by the hackers began in the middle of last week. The
ILA attempted to overcome the malfunction, but decided by the end of
the week that there was no alternative to closing most of the site.
Among other effects, closing the site means that developers and
contractors wishing to participate in ILA tenders are unable to obtain
the tender details. The ILA recommends that these parties follow
parallel announcements in the daily press.
ILA acting director-general Miron Chumash told Globes that he hopes
that the site will renew its functioning within a few days. Meanwhile,
the ILA is preparing alternate means of providing the information. The
damage by hostile hackers follows similar operations in recent weeks,
which among other things damaged the Ministry of Foreign Affairs web
