The Israeli government says that hackers have targeted its water supply and treatment facilities last week. In a security alert sent by the Israeli National Cyber-Directorate (INCD), the agency is urging personnel at companies active in the energy and water sectors to change passwords for all internet-connected systems. If passwords can’t be changed, the agency recommended taking systems offline until proper security systems can be put in place. The INCD alert, issued on April 23, said the agency received reports of intrusion attempts at wastewater treatment plants, water pumping stations, and sewers, but did not go into details.
