An Israeli court has jailed a former housekeeper for Defence Minister Benny Gantz who attempted to pass information to an Iran-linked hacking group.
Omri Goren, 38, was sentenced to three years in prison under a plea deal that saw prosecutors drop espionage charges.
The Israeli justice ministry said Goren told Black Shadow hackers he could send information on Mr. Gantz and put malware on his computer in exchange for money.
But he denied knowingly attempting to spy for Iran, Israel’s arch-enemy. END
