According to a newspaper article in Israel daily Haaretz, a Saudi collective calling itself Group-XP claimed earlier this week it had obtained the data after successfully penetrating a leading Israeli sports website, One.co.il.

The mass of stolen data also includes personal addresses, names, phone numbers and ID numbers of individuals registered with the site, the newspaper reports. It also allegedly contained details of individuals identified as ‘Zionists’ and those who had donated cash to rabbis.

However, credit card companies in Israel have disputed Group-XP’s claims, saying that repetitions meant that the dump contained data belonging to just 14,000 citizens.

Users who accessed the One.co.il website this Monday were said to be redirected to a page on pastebay.com, where a message left by one of the hackers encouraged visitors to download a file containing the stolen data.

The message also said that the hackers’ target was to obtain credit card data belonging to a total of one million Israeli citizens.
