While political hacking has been around for years, this is a good reminder that credit cards and identity theft are not the only targets when it comes to securing systems. Anyone is a potential target, and organisations who have parties that are opposed to their agenda will be targeted. Whether they are non-governmental entities or minor government departments.
TEHRAN (FNA)- An Iranian cyber group announced that it has hacked more than 1,000 important governmental websites of the US, Britain and France in protest at their support and financial aids to anti-Iran terrorist groups.
“To commemorate the Day of Campaign against Terrorism and the martyrdom anniversary of (former Iranian President Mohammad Ali) Rajayee and (his Prime Minister Mohammad Javad) Bahonar (by the terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization), the group rose to protest at the inhumane measures of the supporters of terrorism, with the US
and Britain standing on top of them, through a new method and hacked and changed the pages of more than 1,000 of their websites,” Behrouz Kamalian, Head of the Iranian Ashiyaneh (nest) cyber group, told FNA on Monday.
