Hackers Attempt to Disrupt Matzav.com


matzav-logo1There have been several attempts by hackers this past week trying to disrupt Matzav.com. In the latest attempt, this morning, the hackers succeeded in preventing certain links on Matzav.com from opening, which is why some of our readers experienced some difficulties. The matter has been resolved and our team of expert technicians continues to beef up the online security of this site to protect it from those who wish to cause it harm.

Based on preliminary findings, the hack attempts do not appear to be related to Iranian-style hacks that have been perpetrated against thousands of Jewish sites, but the motive was no less sinister.

We appreciate your support and apologize for any inconvenience.

We will continue to bring you up-to-the-minute news, intriguing reporting, and insightful analysis, which have made Matzav.com the #1 Torah news center on the World Wide Web.

  2. I lost information this week on my e-mail because other people were logged on to my computer. It told me not to go off since there
    are other people accessing the computer I went off anyway and 2 months of e-mail are gone. I wonder if I could get it back and how to do it.
    It was important information.
