A cyberattack crashed a number of Israeli government websites Monday, according to the country’s cyber officials. 

The Israel National Cyber Directorate blamed the outages on a denial-of-service or DDoS attack. Such incidents typically involve outside attackers directing waves of inauthentic traffic at a website, temporarily rendering it inaccessible.
