Tens of millions of hacks target Israel govt websites

JERUSALEM (Reuters) -- More than 44 million hacking attempts have been made on Israeli government web sites since Wednesday when Israel began its Gaza assault, the government said on Sunday.

Defense-related sites and those of Israel's prime minister, president and Foreign Ministry have been targeted.

A finance ministry spokesman said while the attacks have come from around the world, most have been from Israel and the Palestinian territories.

"The ministry's computer division will continue to block the millions of cyber attacks," Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz said. "We are enjoying the fruits of our investment in recent years in developing computerized defense systems."

Steinitz has instructed his ministry to operate in emergency mode to counter attempts to undermine government sites.
