An group going by the name “Black Reward” said that it had obtained and stolen data pertaining to “Iran’s public and private contacts with the International Atomic Energy Agency,” as well as other documents, such as building blueprints, management and operation schedules, and the “passports and visas of Iranian and Russian specialists” involved in the nation’s nuclear program.
The group shared the data on its Telegram channel and tweeted about the attack, advising users to check the files carefully because Iranian government computers are known to be infected with malware.
Black Reward initially wrote that they were “born among you” and “part of the Iranian hacking community.” The group claimed to be unrelated to previous hacker organizations that have made hacking claims against Iranian targets.
