Israeli websites hacked, no harm done…

This time, at least.  The Tel Aviv stock exchange and Israeli national airliner El Al were hit by a cyberattack today.  No significant damage was done (it was a DDoS attack, which isn’t hard to do and can’t do anything more than shut down a website), and there was no interruption of service for either organization, but Israelis are probably feeling a little bit rattled by the possibility of a cyberattack taking out some of their infrastructure at the wrong time.
