1. IDF foils attempts by Hamas to set cyber traps for soldiers
By: TPS and World Israel News Staff
Cyber terrorists associated with Hamas have been involved with trying to lure IDF soldiers into downloading a Hamas-generated mobile phone app that would give the terror group access to soldiers’ personal information, allow them to retrieve sensitive security information, and remotely install malicious applications that could turn mobile phones into weapons.
In a statement Tuesday, the IDF Spokesman’s Unit announced that the army had launched Operation “Broken Heart“ to combat the threat.
In January 2018, a report surfaced about a suspicious figure on Facebook named Lina Kramer, who had a conversation with a soldier on Facebook and later on Whatsapp, listing an Israeli phone number.
“Not long after the first attacker approached us, we’d already begun receiving dozens of reports from soldiers about suspicious figures and apps on social networks,” said Colonel A., the Head of the Information Security Department.
“I got a message on Facebook that looked innocent at first, from someone named Lina Kramer,” added L., an infantry soldier.
“We started talking on Facebook, then we moved to Whatsapp, and then she asked me to download an app called GlanceLove. When I looked at her profile, I saw that it had content, and that she had an Israeli phone number.”
