The international cyberwar between Israel and Saudi Arabia continues to rage.

ABC News: A hacker claiming to be from Saudi Arabia disrupted access to Israel's El Al airline and the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange on Monday. Neither flights or trading were disrupted, but some users were unable to access the organizations' websites for a short period of time.

For several weeks, Israeli and Saudi hackers have been exchanging attacks. However, officials downplayed the latest attack. "Right now, we're not seeing anything that's especially interesting or especially dangerous," said Gadi Evron, former head of Internet security for the Israeli government.
