The Syrian Electronic Army's hacking remit has limits. Notably, the group last week denied reports that it claimed to have hacked into a primary Israeli critical infrastructure system. "We would like to announce that in response to the unfair and illegal attacks, taken place by Israel on DATE, SEA has penetrated one of the main infrastructural systems (SCADA) in Haifa and managed to gain access to some sensitive data. Also SEA is now able to cause irrecoverable damages to the Israeli's infrastructural systems," read an email sent to some news outlets and signed as being from the Syrian Electronic Army (SEA), which included a link to a PDF file meant to validate the supposed control system intrusion.
But a member of the Syrian Electronic Army told Softpedia that the email was a fake, and said the group never emails media outlets.
