Iranian President Ahmadinejad Official web site compromised

Hot on the heels of the Cross Site Scripting attack on the Spanish EU Presidency site, the  official web site of President Ahmadinejad of Iran appears to have also been compromised.

The site www.ahmadinejad.ir, otherwise known as “Mahmoud Ahmadinejad – The Official Blog – Tehran, Islamic Republic of Iran“ has been compromised and is currently hosting a file called “owned.txt” at the URL http://www.ahmadinejad.ir/userfiles/file/owned.txt. UPDATE: The file has now been removed, see screen capture below.

The file says

“Dear God, In 2009 you took my favorite singer – Michael Jackson, my favorite actress – Farrah Fawcett, my favorite actor – Patrick Swayze, my favorite voice – Neda.
Please, please, don’t forget my favorite politician – Ahmadinejad and my favorite dictator – Khamenei in the year 2010. Thank you.”

 

The reference to “favourite voice” is probably referring to Neda Agha-Soltan who was shot dead during the 2009 Iranian election protests.

No further details are yet available on how the compromise was effected or who is responsible, if more information comes to light I will update this blog post.
