Saudi hackers claim they published Israeli credit card numbers

[ via LA Times ] 3 Jan

Saudi hackers calling themselves Group-XP claimed they broke into a leading Israeli sports website and redirected users to a page where they could download a file containing the sensitive information.

The hackers claimed they published the personal and credit card information of nearly half a million Israelis. After poring over the lists, credit companies said the number was much lower. According to the Bank of Israel, about 15,000 credit cards were compromised. 
The credit companies said they quickly blocked the cards and will replace them in coming days.
