Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network reported that Iraqi hackers were behind the cyberattack that temporarily took down the Petah Tikva-based company’s website on Tuesday.
The targeting apparently came in the form of a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack, during which a website is targeted by overwhelming its servers with too many requests to connect.
Sabereen News, a Telegram news channel associated with Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) or Hashd al-Sha’abi, also reported the cyber operation.
Iraqi groups al-Tahera and Team 1877 later announced they had managed to bring down Cellebrite’d website.
Last April, the website of Israel’s Airports Authority was knocked offline due to a denial of service attack.
The Iraqi group al-Tahera said that its hackers had targeted the website in a cyberattack.
The Telegram channel Sabareen on April 19 reported that the group had conducted DDoS attacks against the websites of the Zionist Russian-language Channel 9 and KAN news.
