According to Reuters, hackers recently shut down the Web sites for both the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange, El Al Airlines, and three Israeli banks.

"However, internal systems appeared unaffected by the digital infiltrators, as stock trading and flights operated normally despite the cyber attack," writes TG Daily's Trent Nouveau.

"The attack prompted Israel Bank to block IP addresses originating from Saudi Arabia, Iran and Algeria in an effort to thwart further security breaches," Nouveau writes.
