Twitter Hacked: Iranian Cyber Army takes on
18-Dec-2009 (5 comments)

Bangalore: The millions of Twitter buffs are at dismay as Twitter gets hacked for the fourth time consecutively, this year. The last time it was hacked in August this year, Twitter said in its status blog that it was 'defending against a denial-of-service attack,' in which hackers command scores of computers to a single site at the same time, preventing legitimate traffic from getting through. This time the site seems to be hacked by an Iranian Cyber Army.

It marks an already difficult week for Twitter. Its application Twitterfeed had a data migration only this weekl, leaving many users with a reduced service. The new hack is nothing but an added woe. The problem started around one hour back. The site, which has been hacked for the fourth time this year, is offline and the message reads, "This site has been hacked by Iranian Cyber Army.

The message at the bottom of the hacked page, and has been translated from Urdu by Tech Crunch, goes on to say, "U.S.A. Think they are controlling and managing Internet by their access, but they don't. We control and manage Internet by our power, so do not try to stimulation Iranian peoples to... NOW WHICH COUNTRY IN EMBARGO LIST? IRAN? USA? WE PUSH THEM IN EMBARGO LIST ;) Take Care."

btw, try to understand the difference between Iranians and i.r. forces which mostly consist of anti-Iranians. Those anti-Iranians are indeed not the brightest God has put on earth. The forces that seek democracy are the true Iranian nationalists, not the arab look a likes you keep adoring ( for which reason that is, is a total mistery to me since they only have caused setback and failure in Iran, especially to the armed forces you seem to be so in love with).

Dim-witted through and through

You got that right Pirouz!  They are complete idiots!  See, they have brought brand new illumination to the plight of peaceful Iranians in search of their freedom.  The more Iran's oil money is spent on projects and operations which undermine the will of Iranian people, the better it is for the movement, because everyone will see the oppressive thinking of Islamic Republic of Iran.  They are dim-witted in many ways, the least of which is to continually show a sinister and horrifying picture of themselves as a regime which terrorizes not only its own people, but given half a chance would also do it to the rest of the world.  IRI is a loser through and through.  Time will show you the extent and depth of this sooner than later.

Couldn't be those dim-witted camel driving Iranians; gotta be the Russians helping them.

And so the anti-Iran soft power coup forces suffer another (temporary) setback.

The buzz is that it was done by the Russian technologists in IRI's employment.


Got to hand it to them nut cases.
