Facebook neutralized Palestinian hackers

Facebook has neutralized two hacker groups sponsored by the Palestinian Authority. Hackers used the social network to distribute spyware.

According to Facebook experts, the first hacker group was associated with the Preventive Security Service of the Palestinian National Authority (PNA), and the second with the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas.

The first group targeted Palestinian users, and the second also targeted Syrian, Turkish, Iraqi, Lebanese and Libyan users.

Hackers used malicious software for Android. It was disguised as a secure chat application. This program hijacked device metadata, tracked keystrokes, and passed that data on to hackers. SpyNote malware was also used to track calls and gain remote access to phones.

On social networks, the attackers impersonated various people in order to send victims links to phishing pages.
