Skimming through the news today and came across an article in pr-inside.com, on Iranian hacker attempts to disrupt Jewish American leader’s message to Iran. A small blurb in the piece suggested that there was some evidence of Chinese fingerprints or assistance:
In the month since Hoenlein’s message was posted, Rosen said there have been «dozens» of attempts to hack into the site, called Jerusalemonline.com. He said they succeeded in labeling the Web site as «dangerous» on the Google search engine.
In an e-mail message to The Associated Press, Rosen said his technicians identified the hackers as «probably Iranian based with Chinese assistance or fingerprints.
I have written to Jerusalemonline for further clarification on this section of the article and hopefully will have an update. It would be very interesting to see if there is more to this, even if the Iranians are just using Chinese hacker malware.
