Summary Box: Hacker posts more Israeli card nos.

ANOTHER ATTACK: A hacker claiming to be a 19-year-old Saudi posted thousands of Israeli credit card numbers and other personal data online in a second politically motivated attack this week.

LIMITED IMPACT: Credit card companies say only a few hundred dollars had been fraudulently spent on the hacked cards. They say they swiftly closed affected accounts and were boosting their staff for the weekend in case more data is released.

THE DETAILS: An official says the hacker released the details of some 6,000 active accounts late Thursday, on top of the 15,000 made public earlier in the week.
