Apparently a group claiming to be Iranian hackers has hacked into one of the most unknown government agencies in existence:
From the Guardian:
The website of the Federal Depository Library Program was replaced on Saturday with a page titled “Iranian Hackers!” that displayed images of Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the Iranian flag.
An illustration is shown of Donald Trump being punched in his bloody face from an Iranian soldier’s fist above Iran on a map. Rockets are depicted flying by Trump’s chest.
A caption reads (in English as well as Persian):
Martyrdom was his (Shahid Soleymani) reward for years of implacable efforts. With his departure and with God’s power, his work and path will not cease and severe revenge awaits those criminals who have tainted their filthy hands with his blood and blood of the other martyrs of last night’s incident.
Another page waged: “This is only small part of Iran’s cyber ability!”
It is unknown if Iran had anything to do with this incredibly arbitrary hack, but the idea of an Iranian cyber attack was being floated heavily today several hours before this happened on several major US networks — Wired, CNBC, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, to name literally just a few.
Are we looking at the worst cyber threat in history, a joke, or modern war propaganda? Either way, minus the missiles and military insignia, excellent picture.
