Iran: Chained retaliatory cyberattacks against MOIS and IRGC Mujahideen website thwarted
The fourth attack thwarted 2.2 million RPS Friday noon
Rampant cyber retaliatory attacks on the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK/PMOI) of the IRGC and the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) of the clerical regime started at 5 p.m., Thursday, January 27, 2022, and continues to operate.
The fourth and heaviest attack took place at noon today, January 28, with a power of 2.2 million requests per second (RPS). The goal was to shut down the site’s server, but from this statement, all attacks failed and were foiled by Iranian Resistance engineers and experts. The MEK’s website, Mojahedin.org, has had no problems with these attacks and is available.
The first attack began on Thursday evening January 27 at 5:50 p.m. local Tehran time. The next attack occurred around 6:45 p.m. and the third at 10:00 p.m.
The Iranian Resistance strongly condemns cyberterrorism by the ruling religious fascism in Iran and urges the United Nations and all relevant organizations, as well as the European Union and its member states to take practical measures to deal with the regime’s cyberterrorism and to its activities against freedom of access to information.
