Report: Another cyber attack on the Iranian Ministry of Transport

The official Iranian news agency IRNA reported that there are disruptions in the website of the Iranian Ministry of Transportation, following a cyber attack. The agency did not elaborate further, but added that the case is under investigation.

As you may recall, yesterday it was reported that train services in Iran were disrupted, and were in “unprecedented chaos”, apparently following a cyber attack, local media reported. According to the report, hackers released the phone number of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s office as a number for malfunction inquiries.

Meanwhile, trains in the country were delayed or canceled altogether when ticket offices, the national railway site and cargo services were disrupted, and a message on electronic boards at stations asked travelers to call a number that actually belonged to Khamenei’s office, according to the Fares news agency.
