Hackers disrupt Iran’s rail system: report | Newcastle Herald | #cybersecurity | #cyberattack | #cybersecurity | #infosecurity | #hacker



news, world

Iran’s rail system has come under cyberattack, a semi-official news agency reports, with hackers posting fake messages about train delays or cancellations on display boards at stations across the country. The hackers posted messages such as “long delayed because of cyberattack” or “cancelled” on the boards. They also urged passengers to call for information, listing the phone number of the office of the country’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The semi-official Fars news agency reported that the hack led to “unprecedented chaos” at rail stations. No group took responsibility. Earlier in the day, Fars said trains across Iran had lost their electronic tracking system. It was not immediately clear if that was also part of the cyberattack. Fars later removed its report and instead quoted the spokesman of the state railway company, Sadegh Sekri, as saying “the disruption” did not cause any problem for train services. It was not clear if the reported attack caused any damage or disruptions in Iran’s computer and internet systems, and whether it was the latest chapter in the US and Iran’s cyber operations targeting the other.
