Anti-Israel boycott movement suffers a slew of cyberattacks

JERUSALEM — The international movement calling for a boycott against Israel on Thursday said its website was repeatedly attacked earlier this year and raised suspicions that Israel was behind the attacks.

Bart_SimpsonThe BDS movement released a report Thursday showing that its main website suffered six attacks in February and March. The denial of service attacks, which work by flooding a target website with bogus traffic, knocked out the BDS website for several hours at a time.

The report, compiled by non-profit online security service eQualit.ie, said the attacks had a level of “sophistication and commitment” it normally does not see. It also noted that an unidentified Israeli human rights group had been attacked at the same time, indicating there was a “common adversary.”
