"Cyber disruption" triggers website outage in Iranian ministry
A "cyber disruption" caused websites of Iran's transport and urbanization ministry to lose service on Saturday, according to AP.
The big picture: This is the second abnormality in computer systems related to the ministry, per AP.
- On Friday, Iran's railroad system experienced a cyberattack and hackers posted fake messages about train delays and cancellations on display boards at train stations across the country.
- Iran's minister of telecommunications Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi cautioned on Saturday about possible cyberattacks.
- The cause of Saturday's outage is not yet clear and the case is under investigation. No group has taken responsibility of the incident.
