The websites Iran claims to have hacked and gained confidential data are internet provider sites, security sites (Israel Special Security Projects (ISSP)), commercial sites, and economic sites (banks I'm guessing). I doubt they've hacked into any sensitive Israeli Gov't/Military sites but even if they did those websites probably do not contain much information that's useful to the Iranian regime because classified information is not connected to the internet. The Iranian special forces hackers are from the Iranian DataCoders Security Team.

Let me Google more about the Iranian Datacoders Security Team for you...

Iran Claims to Have Launched Cyber Attack on Israel


www.matthewaid.com...


July 22, 2012

This morning an Iranian media website, citing official Iranian government sources, claimed that Iran’s cyber warfare unit launched a large-scale cyber attack which took down 220 Israeli websites. According to the report, the attack was in retaliation for the July 23, 2011 killing in Tehran of Iranian nuclear scientist Darioush Rezaeinejad, who was shot to death by unknown assailants while waiting to pick up his daughter from school in east Tehran. The Iranians have always claimed that Rezaeinejad was killed by agents working for the Israeli intelligence service, the Mossad.

I doubt it but for some odd reason they feel the need to save face.

Wouldnt it make a lot more sense so state the truth: that they are a nation which is running out of oil. They need an alternative energy source. That they are so technologically challenged they have to export their oil and have it imported back as gasoline.

That they are a poor nation and if attacked have very little capability to defend themselves. That the World should view the actions of the West as nothing less than a modern day Holocaust etc etc

What is it that you doubt? That they hacked the websites? If so, did you check out my Google Search link on the Iranian DataCoders Security Team? You can that they indeed did hack numerous websites. So that's confirmed. I believe they did indeed hack 370 websites.

So how many sites has the US or Israel hacked? That should be the real front page news.

But no...remember that Iran is the REAL enemy of the World now. At least since the US and Israel has set their focus them and the propaganda machine is in full swing.

Iran...Bad.

Israel and US...Good.



Peace

The US and Israeli are totally guilty of cyber attacks, as we all know. The Iranians have declared cyber war because of these attacks, murder of scientists included.

Just remember, Gov't/military classified information is not connected to the internet so no war should ever be started over hack jobs. But then again, I did read an ATS thread about Chinese hackers having control of US power grids, so that could be a problem. Either way, no more wars please.

On paper.
Reality is a different thing. People become complacent, systems break down, misunderstandings happen.

The US military machine is a massive one, spread around the world. Even if that machine is on a closed system, with potentially hundreds of thousands of devices on that network you can guarantee that there is most definitely a weakness.

I've worked in intel and classified material is indeed on a closed system & those who have access to it are definitely not going to steal information and leak it easily. Sure someone like Bradley Manning could strike again, but they haven't yet.

Are you saying it wasn't on the news, suggesting media bias?
Strange, I've just found it after a 5 seconds worth of google search:

www.nytimes.com...

www.cbc.ca...

Its value as a media stunt likely eclipses that of any 'confidential' information they have managed to accrue. It really gives one a sense of the disparity in this cyberspace tussle when high-ranking IRGC officers continue to brag about hacking websites.
