The Jewish Agency’s website was attacked by unknown hackers.

The wave of attacks began Sept. 7 and continued through the weekend, the organization said in a statement released Sept. 11.

The attacks, which made the website temporarily unavailable for short times, came from across the globe, including Russia, Hungary, Saudi Arabia, Brazil and Austria, according to the Jewish Agency.

The site returned to normal operation Sept. 9 following security upgrades. — jta
