Anonymous steals passports and 10,000 e-mails from Iran

Anonymous today announced that it has stolen more than 10,000 e-mails from the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, many of which include scanned passports. (Ars Technica)


  1. I suggest ‘shopping a turban onto the ‘trollface’ to produce the ‘Ayatrollah’, a suitable mascot for whoever was behind this one.

  2. On second thought it was probably my reference to “that bitch” Clinton…

    This hack is fo’ real, but doesn’t stand to be very useful in any way other than being an embarrasment to the relevant Iranian department. All the emails I have read are just boring applications for entry Visas and the passports scans are from people who applied for a visa.

    The only potentially interesting part is:
    1) What nationalities are applying
    2) What industries are working with Iran

    I am batch detaching the files from the .emls now… it will be interesting to see if there is anything of value in there.
