Nov 25, 2012 | comments

Another victim of cyber attack ,The group of hackers who named itself Parastoo Farsi have exposed contacts for more than 100 nuclear experts and scientists from UN nuclear agency International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the word Parastoo is Farsi and referes a bird species like the  swallow and an Iranian girl’s name.

      The agency reported that data breach is related to “some contact details related to experts working” with the agency”, fortunately data doesn’t include information related to confidential work carried out by the IAEA.
An agency spokesman Gill Tudor declared that the agency is working to find and fix the vulnerability exploited during the attack.

“The IAEA deeply regrets this publication of information stolen from an old server that was shut down some time ago,” ”deeply regrets this publication of information stolen from an old server”.”The IAEA’s technical and security teams are continuing to analyze the situation and do everything possible to help ensure that no further information is vulnerable,”

Why the hackers have hit the agency?

The main subject of the dispute between the U.S., Israel and Western countries with Iran is developing of the atomic program by the government in Tehran. Israel and the United States accused Iran to develop a nuclear weapons capability, due this reason they consider Iran a serious threat for worldwide peace. Tehran always denied any accusation and is continuing development of the program for uranium enrichment declaring civil purposes, and excluding military operations.

The IAEA agency is the organism that is investigating on Iran’s nuclear program and according the group of hackers its analysis isn’t impartial, Israel is widely believed to have nuclear arsenal but no government has conducted further investigations on its nuclear armament. Recently the IAEA published a report that states that Iran was ready to double the output at its underground uranium enrichment facility at Fordo, and the agency was unable to conclude that all nuclear material in was for civil use.
