Hamas tries to hack Israelis with fake rocket warning app
by the TOI Staff for the TIMES OF ISRAEL, August 10, 2018
Israeli cyber security firm warns that software that mimics the Code Red alert takes control of mobile phones and can’t be deleted.
An Israeli cyber security firm warned Thursday that the Hamas terror group was trying to hack Israelis through a fake version of the Code Red rocket warning app.
The warning came amid the worst bout of violence between Israel and Hamas since 2014, with the terror group firing some 180 projectiles into Israel.
Hamas was trying to take advantage of this and had put out a counterfeit app that mimicked the real software that warns Israelis of incoming rockets and mortars, said ClearSky Cyber Security.
“When you download the (fake) app it takes control of the mobile phone and allows the operator to track the device, take pictures, record sound and make calls and send messages,” said ClearSky CEO Boaz Dolev.
UNRWA IN FINANCIAL CRISIS; JORDAN WARNS OF ‘CATASTROPHE’
by REUTERS for the JERUSALEM POST, August 09, 2018
AMMAN – A United Nations agency helping Palestinian refugees is facing a severe financial shortfall. Jordan warns of “catastrophic” impact on the lives of millions of refugees in the region.
Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi said after meeting visiting UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl the budget crisis facing the agency could deprive refugees of core education, healthcare and food security service that would only “deepen their humanitarian plight.”
“UNRWA faces a dangerous financial deficit that threatens catastrophic consequences on refugees if it is not covered before its financial allocations run out,” Safadi was quoted as saying in a foreign ministry statement.
UNRWA has faced a cash crisis since the United States, long its biggest donor, slashed funding to the agency, providing just $60 million of a promised $365 million this year.
US President Donald Trump withheld the aid after questioning its value and saying Washington would only provide more assistance if the Palestinians agreed to renew peace talks with Israel.
The IDF Is Ready to Evacuate Settlements on The Border with Gaza
by JOL Staff for JERUSALEM ON LINE, August 09, 2018
The officer said that “in case of need, we evacuate residents of settlements on the border with Gaza.”
The officer stressed that the IDF will no longer act on the formula “silence in response to silence,” when he confined himself to shelling the posts of Hamas in response to any provocation. The officer stressed that the beginning of any settlement in Gaza would be the return of Hamas to the recognition of the conditions under which the Operation “Indestructible Rock” ended.
The officer stressed that “our disposal is a huge opportunity,” and that “Hamas does not dictate terms to us, we decide what and when to do.”
