Cyberattack in Israel “shuts down” road for hours

A major road artery in Israel was paralyzed for hours by a cyberattack this September, according to a security expert speaking to Associated Press.

Attackers used a Trojan program to target a security camera system in the Carmel Tunnels toll road in Haifa, shutting down the road for hours, and causing “hundreds of thousands of dollars” in damage, according to Associated Press.

A source, speaking anonymously to Associated Press, said that Israeli experts thought that the attack was the work of a rogue group, rather than a government, due to the level of expertise involved.
