The Hezbollah Cyber Army: War in Hyperspace?

November 29, 2011 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

The whole idea of a Cyber Jihad is a notion that should not just be sloughed off as rhetoric. I do think that if the VEVAK are involved (and they would want a hand in this I am sure) they could in fact get some real talent and reign in the ranks to do some real damage down the road...

Duqu May Actually Be An Advanced Cyber Weapon

November 17, 2011 Added by:Headlines

“Why go to all this trouble to deploy a simple key-logger? Given that there are additional drivers waiting to be discovered, we can liken Duqu to a sophisticated rocket launcher – we have yet to see the real ammunition appear..."

Should We Strike Iran? How About the Information War?

November 16, 2011 Added by:Joel Harding

A pre-emptive information strike would only cause the Iranians to involuntarily spasm and deploy suicide teams to attack US and other targets worldwide. Anything less would just be posturing for political purposes and could possibly result in more senseless deaths...

Duqu and Stars: Proceed with Caution

November 06, 2011 Added by:Robert M. Lee

To state that Duqu and Stars are related based off undisclosed evidence is unfounded. Stars struck Iran in April and we know Duqu had a variant existing in April. However, the Kaspersky report does not state whether the variant of Duqu was discovered on one of the Iranian targets...

Cyber Attacks: Iran Will Retaliate

October 03, 2011 Added by:Joel Harding

What does Iran mean by ‘We will retaliate in cyberspace’? Iran has a record of Shamshir rattling and ‘trash talk’. Yes, Iran has formed a cyber command. Yes, there is a hacker group called the Iranian Cyber Army, and they were defacing pages in China and even took down Baidu...

Iran Prepares for Cyberwar

September 11, 2011 Added by:Joel Harding

Last year a website I was running on information warfare was hacked. Rather, I should say, it was defaced. Someone got onto the website and exchanged my main HTML page with theirs. It was the Iranian Cyber Army, they left their calling card along with some funky looking furling flag...

Comodo: Iran Responsible for Rogue Digital Certificates

September 08, 2011 Added by:Headlines

"The attack on Diginotar doesn't rival Stuxnet in terms of sophistication or coordination. However, the consequences of the attack on Diginotar will far outweigh those of Stuxnet. The attack on Diginotar will put cyberwar on or near the top of the political agenda of Western governments..."
