Black Reward gang breached Iranian Nuclear power plant
Amidst the ongoing hijab protest and other political rivalries, the Iranian Government has faced another blow. An Iranian hacker group named “Black Reward” claims to have breached the Iranian nuclear program along with other government agencies. The hacker gang had demanded the release of the political prisoners held in captivity due to the ongoing tension between the Government and the opposition. The group had given a deadline of 24 hours and also threatened to release the confidential documents if their demands are not fulfilled.
The gang has named this attack “Op Iran” and has also released a few documents from Iran’s nuclear program after the expiration of the given deadline of 24 hours. It is believed the size of the leaked data is approx 50 GB. The published document discloses the contact between Iran’s atomic energy production and development and its foreign partners, management, identity details, and engineer’s payslip along with the passport and visa details of the Russian representative working on the project.
The gang has released a statement on its official Twitter handle and dark web blog stating:
“The gang is serious and takes full responsibility to fulfil the purpose of this attack.”
The Black reward seems to be upset with the way the Iranian Government has been dealing with the anti-hijab strike and opposition party. The gang believes that the Iranian Government is inclined toward Muslim clerics and has been acting as a puppet of the Russian Government. They want the eradication of the Islamic republic from Iran and have declared it as a mission behind operation ”OP Iran”.
Meanwhile, the Government is yet to confirm the size of the data breach and its impact. However, this news has spread worldwide as various national and international media publications have broadcasted the ongoing cyber breach.
