Hackers raided a recent Zoom event titled “My Jewish Italy” and chanted support for Al Qaeda and Hitler.
On the evening of 18th November, the creators of the app “My Jewish Italy” held an event to advertise and present the features of the new social networking platform that allows users to discover important cultural sites, locate local kosher products, and so on.
The Turin-based Jewish app, designed by the Ucei and promoted by the Ari Foundation and Jewish Cultural Heritage, was created to raise awareness of the Jewish community and heritage and its positive influence in the country.
During the presentation, however, a series of offensive imagery and swastikas appeared on the screens of the speakers and participants, and the voices of the hackers could be heard shouting fascist and hateful slogans. The hackers managed to break into the platform through the security embankment and warned the guests that they had seized their personal data, including their credit card details.
The event was subsequently terminated.
