The Iranian Ministry’s Websites Have Been Shut Down Due To “Cyber Disruption.”

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran’s transport and urbanization ministry’s websites were down on Saturday due to a “cyber disruption” in its staff’s computer systems, according to the official IRNA news agency.

The article did not go into detail, but it did state that the situation is being investigated. This is the ministry’s second anomaly in terms of computer systems.

Iran’s railroad system was targeted by hackers on Friday, with false warnings about purported train delays or cancellations appearing on display boards at stations around the nation. It happened when the computerized train tracking system in Iran failed.

On Saturday, Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi, the minister of telecommunications, issued a warning regarding ransomware-based intrusions. Similar assaults were recorded in Iran in 2018.

Iran’s telecoms ministry started in December of that year that the nation had defused a huge assault on unnamed “electronic infrastructure,” but gave no further details on the alleged strike.

So yet, no one has claimed responsibility for either event.

Multiple train delays were experienced in 2019 due to an issue in the railway company’s computer servers.

It remained unclear if the alleged hack damaged or disrupted Iran’s computer and internet facilities.
