The Dutch government has announced that it is investigating whether Iran may have been behind the hacking of state websites.
Dutch Interior Ministry spokesman Vincent van Steen did not say if he had summoned the Iranian diplomatic representatives to explain themselves but said more details would be published in a letter to the Dutch parliament soon.
Van Steen confirmed a report by the Dutch news agency ANP saying the cabinet was looking into whether the Iranian government played a part in breaking into Dutch government websites.
The sites were deemed unsafe after someone half inched internet security certificates from Dutch IT company DigiNotar, he said.
Officials at the Iranian embassy in The Hague have not said anything or replied to the filthy satanic western press which tried to get its side of the story.
According to Reuters, Google said it had received reports of attacks on Google users, that “the people affected were primarily located in Iran.” It added that the attacker used a fraudulent certificate issued by DigiNotar.
DigiNotar was hacked in mid-July and security certificates were stolen for a number of domains.
Things have not been good between Iran and Holland ever since the glorious Islamic Revolution decided to hang a Dutch-Iranian woman and bury her without her relatives being present. The woman had been arrested after taking part in demonstrations. The Iranians decided that it was better to accuse the poor woman of drug smuggling and hang her before anyone asked any tricky questions.
The Iranians were also miffed that an Iranian asylum seeker who was being extradited set himself on fire in Amsterdam and died. The Iranians seemed upset that it deprived them of a decent public hanging. We guess it meant that they had to find something to put on telly instead or find a prostitute to stone.
John Bumgarner, a cyber researcher and chief technology officer for the non-profit U.S. Cyber Consequences Unit, told Reuters that this was the second batch of fraudulent security certificates in the last six months with questionable links to Iran.
The certificate would only allow Iran to access the email and Skype accounts of dissenters, but also install monitoring software on their computers.
