Iranian hackers have hacked into a public federal database of government documents.
Hackers from Iran carried out a cyberattack on one of the U.S. government websites and hacked into a public federal database of government documents. This is reported by BNO News.
The attack followed the death of Iranian General Kasem Suleimani in a U.S. airstrike in Iraq. According to BNO News, on the front page of the Federal Depository Library Program, unknown people left inscriptions in two languages – English and probably Persian – from the alleged “Islamic Republic of Iran”.
“We will never stop supporting our friends in the region,” the hackers said in the message.
Earlier, Axios, citing a source close to the U.S. presidential administration, reported on U.S. concerns about possible cyberattacks by Iran after the assassination of Kasem Suleimani.
According to the newspaper, on the page unknown also posted an image of the Iranian flag, a photo of the Supreme Leader of Iran Ali Khamenei, and “bleeding” Trump, who is punched in the face by someone, and flying missiles.
Currently, the Federal Depository Library Program is not available to users – when you try to go to fdlp.gov gives a message about an unknown error.
Recall, on January 3, the U.S. conducted a special operation to eliminate the head of the elite Iranian special services, General Kasem Suleimani, near the airport in Baghdad. The missile strike on the convoy, which was followed by the military commander, was ordered by Trump.
Iranian authorities have accused the United States of international terrorism and have vowed to avenge Suleimani’s death.
