Cyber Attack on Iranian Opposition’s Websites

In the recent days, some of the most important websites of the Iranian oppositions groups have been hacked or they returned unavailable messages to the visitors.

Kalame.com the former official website of Mir Hossein Mousavi is unavailable from Tuesday. The server which is hosting the site doesn’t respond to requests. “Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.” This is what Firefox returns as the result of connection.

DaneshjooNews.com is another website of Iran’s green movement which is currently unavailable and offline. It has the same problem as Kalame website.

IranGreenVoice.com was offline from Tuesday to Friday but the webmasters of this site recovered the databases. “From the past week, we experienced several Cyber attacks. In Tuesday we received a notification from the hosting provider saying the hardwares are damaged because of these attacks. We are working hard to recover the site from these attacks.” IGV said in a statement. The site didn’t publish any information of hackers.

It’s noteworthy that all of the mentioned websites are officially blocked in Iran and people should browse them by bypassing the strict filters and blockades.
