A hacker has released credit card and other personal data of dozens of Israelis and is threatening to leak more.

The hacker published the information on the website Remember Emad, referring to the operational chief of Hezbollah, Imad Mughniyeh, who was killed Feb. 12, 2008 in Damascus by a car bomb. Hezbollah blames his killing on Israel. Israel has neither confirmed nor denied its involvement in the hit.

The hacker on Wednesday released credit card numbers, Facebook passwords, copies of checks and identification numbers of dozens of Israelis. It also released the database of The Israeli Presidential Conference, an annual program hosted by Israeli President Shimon Peres.

The information comes from WebGate, an Israeli data center, the hacker reported on the website. The hacker reports, “We have terabytes of data from WebGate, but uploading the whole chunk of data on our servers will take time, so we decided to publish them gradually.”

In January, Saudi Arabian hackers published the credit card information and personal data of thousands of Israelis. Many of the cards were expired or the numbers were repeated on several lists.
