Gantz and top aides targeted by Russian hackers in ‘unprecedented’ attack

Blue and White party co-leader Benny Gantz and a number of his top aides were reportedly the victims of a Russian hacking effort earlier this year, according to Israeli broadcaster Channel 12.

In an internal report submitted by The CGI Group, an Israeli firm specializing in business intelligence, Gantz’s mobile device was targeted in a “powerful and unprecedented attack by Russian hackers, the kind we have never seen before.”

Also targeted in the attack was Blue and White campaign chairman Ido Har, campaign adviser Ronen Moshe, and chief of staff Hod Betzer.
