Saudi Arabian hackers are claiming to have stolen and posted online the 
personal details of more than 400,000 Israeli citizens including credit 
card numbers, names and addresses and phone numbers, in an attempt to 
cause widespread disruption and discredit the country's banks.

In a posting on Pastebin on Monday, a hacker known as "0xOmar" claimed 
the attack had been carried out by "group-xp", which he explained was 
the "largest Wahhabi hacker group of Saudi Arabia".

"We have hacked a lot of Israeli servers and extracted a lot of 
information about Israeli people," the message read.

"We daily use these cards to solve our problems, purchasing VPNs, VPSes, 
softwares, renting GPU clusters, renting cloud servers and much more! We 
decided to give the world a new year gift, about 400,000+ Israeli people 

The hacker claimed the attack was the first in a series that would aim 
to expose the details of one million Israelis.
