A group claiming to be working on behalf of the Iranian government has hacked a US government website where they plastered sinister warnings.
Hackers who claim to be working for the Iranian government have hacked a US government website in a “revenge” attack.
In a brutal take-down of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) the hackers warned this first move was “only a small part of Iran’s cyber ability”.
The hackers posted: “This is message from the Islamic Republic of Iran.
“We will not stop supporting our friends in the regions, the oppressed people of Palestine, the oppressed people of Yemen, the people, and the Syrian government, the people and government of Iraq, the oppressed people of Bahrain, the true mujahideen resistance in Lebanon and Palestine.
“They will be supported by us.”
Images of a photoshop Donald Trump appearing to be bloodied by a punch to the face, the Iranian flag and the country’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei were also posted onto the page.
The threat from the hackers went on: “Hacked by Iran cybersecurity group hackers. This is only a small part of Iran’s cyber ability.”
“We’re always ready. To be continued.”
