Today, the agency said via Telegram that access for users to its website was “disrupted” due to a “complex hacking and cyber attack operation». Until the process of “removal” of any malware is complete, some of its services may experience problems for a few days, he added.

Fars also claimed, without giving more details, that there are almost daily cyber-attacks against it “from various countries, including the occupied territories” (Israel).

On October 21 a group calling itself Black Rewars reported that it had gained access to documents related to Iran’s nuclear program and demanded that the authorities release all political prisoners and people arrested in the protests. After his 24-hour deadline expired, documents, maps and a video were posted on social networking sites.

On November 23, Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization admitted that one of its subsidiaries had been targeted, but played down the significance of the leaked documents.
