Iranian Diplomatic Sites HackedIranian Diplomatic Sites Hacked

A group of hackers, apparently employed by Saudi Arabia, hacked into a number of websites affiliated with Iran’s Foreign Ministry and published the image of Saudi kings on the websites. Over the past days, several websites with links to the Iranian Foreign Ministry, including web pages of embassies and cultural attaché offices, were attacked by a team of hackers, Tasnim News Agency reported on Thursday. A background check has revealed that the cyber intruders are not governmental elements, but have been seemingly paid for by Riyadh to hack into the Iranian websites. The attacks follow an earlier cyber strike against the Statistical Center of Iran on May 24. Iran’s Cyber Police said the cyber-attack had been traced back to IP addresses in three Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia.
