ICNA was contacted yesterday, 19 October, by UnSec Team member Mostafa Asadi concerning the hack and defacement of the website of Hafez Institute of Higher Education, Shiraz, Iran. Although of course this kind of activities are illegal in Iran, according to many experts, this kind of activities are very important in bringing attention to the poor security of websites, and this is very valuable for Iranian organizations and companies. Defacement is not the most hard activity but an organization that is vulnerable to this kind of attacks needs to really revise its security programs.
UnSec listed its members as V4ND4L | Mostafa.Asadi | MaMaD | Null Byte.
