Hackers funded by the Iranian government have hacked a domain server and have redirected web traffic from The Voice of America’s English homepage to a site that displays the graphic above.
Earlier, images of machine guns were displays on one hacked site.
The site has been hacked since Monday.
From the Voice of America:
“VOA executives said the hackers did not penetrate any of the government-funded agency’s computer networks. They did gain entry to an outside computer system that operates a domain name server – a database of Internet addresses available worldwide – and redirected VOA traffic to the hackers’ own site.”
According to FARS News Agency:
“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. VOA and its affiliates have long been supporting anti-Islamic Republic groups and sought to provoke unrests in Iran.”
