Infidels deface Iranian presidential site
Script kiddies court possible fatwah
A team of script kiddies have invited a possible fatwah by defacing the Web site of the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The site , which normally carries pieces on President Khatami latest weighty pronouncements, was replaced with a smiley face and taunts by the hackers, mOsad and R.S. (infernoZ), that "your security is SUXXX!!!. The defacement has been mirrored by Attrition and is available here,
Chris McNab, network security analyst at MIS Corporate Defence, said the attack was the work of "opportunists" who likely exploited a simple flaw in the site's Internet Information Server 4 web server.
"This attack was mounted by people who probably only know a handful of techniques. They probably scanned all the systems in gov.ir and then ran an exploit script, which is available on sites like Packetstorm," said McNab. ®
