VOA Website Defaced by Iranian Hackers

Post by Alaskan Girl on Wed Feb 23, 2011 7:29 pm

A group of hackers calling itself the Iranian Cyber Army defaced the website for the Voice of America, the organization said Tuesday.

The VOA hacking seem to be in response to remarks Clinton made on Sunday on BBC America, according to a statement on the Voice of America site. The Iranian Cyber Army is not officially affiliated with Iran; but the government-run Fars News Agency confirmed that the group had hacked the VOA site and all of its affiliated websites, including those in other languages.

"The move came in response to the false reports released by the VOA and other websites on the spread and progress of seditious moves in Iran," wrote Fars, stating that the Voice of America "acts as a complementary and media arm of the U.S. spy agencies."
