Iran’s nuclear energy agency’s email was hacked from a foreign country
An email server belonging to Iran’s atomic energy organisation was hacked from a foreign country. Black Reward, an Iranian hacker collective, has claimed it has leaked information about Iran’s nuclear programs to the public. Documents include atomic development contracts, and management and operational schedules of different parts of the Bushehr power plant.
Iran’s atomic energy organisation announced on Sunday that an e-mail server belonging to one of its subsidiaries had been hacked from a foreign country, and material from that source had been published online.
Black Reward, an Iranian hacker collective, claimed in a statement posted on Twitter that it has leaked information about Iranian nuclear programs, calling the move a gesture of support for Iranian protesters.
According to Black Reward, the documents released included atomic development contracts and agreements with domestic and foreign partners; management and operational schedules of different parts of the Bushehr power plant; and passports and visas of Iranian and Russian specialists working there.
In a statement made on October 21, Black Reward threatened to reveal hacked data within 24 hours if the government did not free political prisoners and those detained during the uprising.
