After the drone assassination of Irans’ Top General, Qasem Soleimani on Friday, Tension emerges between both Iran and the U.S., Twitter is trending with the hashtag #worldwarIII, #ww3 and many more. On the one hand, Iran is ready to take severe revenge while America’s President Donald Trump gives a clear warning to Iran that 52 important military and cultural sites of Iran are ready to get strike by the U.S.
Trump also tweeted that if a war begin then it will be the official end of Iran. Amid tension, Iranian Hackers hacked U.S. Gov Agency websites and defacing them with the Title “Iranian Hackers“. Not only this, the hackers put a photoshopped image of Trump hitting right over the face.
Martyrdom was (Suleimani’s)… reward for years of implacable efforts. With his departure and with God’s power, his work and path will not cease and severe revenge awaits those criminals who have tainted their filthy hands with his blood and blood of the other martyrs.The Defaced Website Speaks
As per Anonymous News, The Gov. Agency that got under the attack was the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP). The agency provides free access to US federal government publications. As per CNN, The matter is under the hands of The Department of Homeland Security which termed the website to be “defaced”
An intrusion was detected on GPO’s FDLP website, which has been taken down. GPO’s other sites are fully operational. We are coordinating with the appropriate authorities to investigate furtherGary Somerset, The chief public relations officer for the US Government Publishing Office
But as per some independent agencies, there is still no confirmation that the website is actually hacked from Iranian Sponsored hackers. The website that is defaced no longer available. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo mentioned that Iran can be planning a cyberattack against the U.S.
There is no clear confirmation about the hack. It can be external just in order to pour petrol in the Fire. It can be a business strategy too as, after the drone attack, there is an increase in the cost of oil across the world while the share markets also boomed.
