Former Iranian President’s Sites Hacked by Cyber Army

Two sites were altered to redirect visitors to the hackers' domain

The hacker collective known as the Hezbollah Cyber Army hacked the websites of the Association of Combatant Clerics and the Baran Foundation, both organizations being managed by Iran’s former president Mohammad Khatami.

Eurasia Review informs that both sites were altered to redirect visitors to the hackers’ website which displayed a protest message against the destruction of Iran’s Islamic values by the country’s reformist figures, list which includes Khatami.

Iran’s Cyber Army has been named in 2009 among the most powerful cyber forces in the world and they’ve been highly active in the country’s political matters, especially when they felt that the Islamic Republic’s enemies were planning to harm the integrity of their belief system.

“Iranian security and military forces treat the cyber-presence of opposition groups as a direct threat to the Islamic Republic regime,” Radio Zamaneh wrote.
