Israel Discourages Hackers from Being Vigilantes

Israel called on computer hackers not to take the law into their own hands to avenge attacks on Israeli credit card companies, and said the authorities were capable of countering all cyber threats. "We call on Israeli citizens to abide by (the law). Just as the Israeli government has found answers for terrorism, we will find answers to this challenge... we call on Israeli citizens not to... act as vigilantes," Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said in a statement.
