The little-known hacker group “Sharp Boys” claimed to have hacked the websites of hotel chains Dan and Isrotel, as well as Mini Hotel and travel price comparison website Trivago.
The hack is believed to have exposed the personal information of about 120,000 Israelis. It is unclear whether the hackers managed to get their hands on sensitive information such as identification numbers, addresses, and credit card numbers.
Last year, the Sharp Boys claimed to have hacked two of Israel's leading outdoor equipment companies, gaining access to the personal data of about 3 million users. The hackers offered to sell the information for $300,000.
At the time, Israeli cybersecurity experts said that although the Sharp Boys appeared to be a run-of-the-mill group of hackers, and their methods were similar to those used by Black Shadow, an Iran-linked group that frequently carries out ransomware attacks.
Hotel chain sources deny the attack. This is not the first time that hackers have published false claims about Israeli companies being hacked.
