“Iranian Cyber Army” Hacks Opposition Websites

Several pro-opposition websites in Iran have been hacked today by the “Iranian Cyber Army”, widely believed to be associated with the Iranian government’s security apparatus.
Rah-e Sabz, the leading opposition website (also known as Jaras), cautioned its readers to ignore incoming e-mails from any organization claiming to be “Jaras” or “Rah-e Sabz” due to possible infiltration of personal data and e-mail addresses.
Also hacked were Kalemeh and Tahavolehsabz.  Similar to previous attacks by the “Cyber Army” against Twitter and the Chinese search engine Baidu, each site displays a banner stating “This Site Has Been Hacked by the Iranian Cyber Army”, and a logo–this time featuring the Iranian flag and an AK-47.
Rah-e Sabz has rerouted its site to http://www.rahesabz.org and http://www.rahesabz.info at this time.  The hacked website is at http://www.rahesabz.net.
