Since beginning the Operation Pillar of Defense military offensive in Gaza on Wednesday, Israel has seen an onslaught of up to 44 million cyber attacks on government websites, according to Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz. All but one of the attack were reportedly stopped, with the lone success bringing down a single website for seven minutes. Hacker group Anonymous claims to be leading the cyber offensive, but there are likely additional parties involved, given the scope of the attacks. [Source Salon]
