Israeli company uses Chinese hacker tool against Hezbollah

Published by at 8:11 am under Chinese Malware

Just damn, damn, damn.

When a reporter makes several attempts to contact you, get back with the guy.  The author of this article, Oded Yaron, tried numerous times to get in touch with me and we missed each other.  My fault, not his.  He still gave our website a plug without mentioning that one of the people that blogs here is a real jackass.  Thanks!

My apologies to Mr. Yaron and from his report, Virtual battleground attacks Hezbollah’s soft underbelly:

Last week, while trying out breaking-in tools developed by Chinese hackers, an Israeli Network security company, Applicure, brought down the Hezbollah Web site (, using no more than 10 bots, which are computers controlled by hackers.

    Heh, grats on the plug…..Decent article as I read through it the only thing that had me questioning it was a typo in a line that I had to re-read, then I understood what he was going for but at first read it was pretty funny.

    “Along the way Trojan horses can be fitted with all kinds of extras, from spying on keyboarding to peeing into the webcam. ”

    Peeing…. ;)

    damn, i just now noticed u wrote about the article

    thanks. never mind, as a master in forgetting to talk to ppl, missing on calls and the like, i can fully understand. and in this particular story i missed out on quite a few ppl

    though i gotta say the whole hizbollah thing was more of a way to attract the israeli audience, to what was, to me, an amazing story that gave me a glimpse on the inner workings of that industry (a lot of it thanks to what i read here, so the link was well placed)
