Indra hacking group blamed for attack on Iranian railway system that trolled country’s supreme leader

Graham Cluley reports:

On 9 July, Iran’s railroad system came under attack from hackers.

The attackers posted messages on station departure boards warning of “long delay[s] because of cyberattack”, and suggesting inconvenienced passengers call “64411” for more information.

64411 is reportedly the telephone number of the office of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader.

With all the politics, it’s often hard to be sure who attacked a company — in this case, some speculated Israel while others thought it was a hacking group called Indra.
