Tel Aviv: According to Israeli reports, Iranian hackers attacked the Israeli “Atraf” dating site for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, “or what is known as the LGBT community,” and threatened to publish the site’s data widely unless the operators paid the equivalent of one million dollars.
“We are dealing with an Iranian cyber terrorist event,” Israeli television quoted a statement from the site’s operators as saying on Sunday.
The operators said they are working to restore the service, but only with full security – including resetting passwords for all users. The website did not respond to an inquiry from the German News Agency (dpa).
According to Israeli media reports, the “Black Shadow” hacking group consisting of Iranian elements is allegedly responsible for the cyber attack.
Other Israeli companies were affected by the hacker attack, including two public transport companies, according to media reports.
