Cyberattack Hits Iran Gas Stations
By Micah Halpern
Tuesday October 26, 2021
Iran was hit by another cyberattack on Tuesday.
The target of this cyberattack was gasoline fueling stations. Long lines snaked across the country as no one was able to fill up on gas.
Here is how the hack worked:
Every time an Iranian used their card and began to fill-up on gasoline, the number 64411 flashed along with the word “cyberattack”.
The numbers 64411 echo a previous attack that struck Iranian trains. That attack was attributed to a hacking group named Indra – the Hindu god of war.
Any number of groups could have perpetrated this cyberattack. Israel and Israelis are, of course, prime candidates – but there is a long list of groups and countries that would benefit from disturbing daily life in Iran.
