HACKED: Ehud Barack’s cellphone hacked by Iranians


The cellphone of former prime minister Ehud Barak was hacked months ago and its contents were apparently sold to Iran, Channel 12 reported on Sunday.

A source with knowledge of the case told the channel’s “Uvda” investigative program that Iran was not responsible for the security breach, but rather appears to have bought the information from foreign hackers.

According to the report, Shin Bet head Nadav Argaman went to Barak’s house last July and told him there were indications that the former prime minister’s phone and computer had been breached and that information from the device was in the hands of Tehran. At the time, the meeting was reported as a discussion over concerns that Iran may be seeking to attempt to target Barak and other prominent Israelis traveling abroad.
