The hacker, calling himself SangKancil, claims to have stolen the identity of an estimated 7 million Israeli citizens by hacking into the base of the CITY4U website, with which municipalities and local councils cooperate.
Through this portal, local governments in many cities collect various payments. Israelis pay through it for water, council property tax, fines, etc.
According to the Israeli media, the attacker has posted the personal data of dozens of Israelis on the Internet and claims to have information about 7 million citizens.
Among the stolen data are identity cards, driver’s licenses, tax returns, a notice of fines, certificates of payments for education, water, parking and other documents.
The attacker claims to own the current database for 2021. However, it turned out that some of the open data is already outdated, while the identity cards that have made it to the Internet are not yet available.
The specialists said that, in all likelihood, there was a failure in the data protection system on the CITY4U.
