Iran Hack U.S. Government Website In First Cyber Attack Launch

Iran’s group of hackers take responsibility for hacking a U.S. government website in their first cyber attack two days after their military chief’s death. The website holds Federal publications that the public can access for free.


In what looks like the first of a series of Iran cyber attacks, a U.S. website suffered a hack. Although there is no official confirmation from the White House yet, it appears to be the case.


The attack comes a few hours after Donald Trump, president of the United States made further threats against Iran. In the wake of the assassination of Qassem Soleimani, Iran had issued an official statement about avenging his death.

Iranian authorities had said it was not a matter of if but when. The slain military leader who is to be buried on Tuesday was viewed as a martyr. However, Trump did not take the threat lying down. Despite having a largely divided country because of his overall attitude, he took to Twitter to make a counter-threat.


He tweeted:

Now, the American Federal Depository Library Programme (FDLP) website is down. The hacked page now shows a doctored picture of Donald Trump bleeding from his mouth and his face being hit by an Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s fist.


The hacked U.S. website page is titled “Iranian Hackers” and also contains series of messages written in Arabic and English, it reads:


“Martyrdom was (Suleimani’s)… reward for years of implacable efforts,


“With his departure and with God’s power, his work and path will not cease and severe revenge awaits those criminals who have tainted their filthy hands with his blood and blood of the other martyrs.”


It also threatens that:


“This is only small part of Iran’s cyber ability !” 


The page shows photos of Iranian missiles flying, its flag and a photo of their supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.


Are we to expect more? Stay tuned as we all hold our breaths.
