A Pakistani hacker struck the Web site of the leading pro-Israel lobbying group in the United States. The hacker got into the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s site to “protest against the atrocities in Palestine by the barbarian Israeli soldiers and their constant support by the U.S. government.” AIPAC is contacting 700 individuals to alert them that some of their personal information, including credit card information, could have been compromised. The FBI is investigating the incident.
