According to reports, an Iranian cyber gang broke into Iran’s Nuclear Power Production and Development Company‘s internal email system on Friday and demanded the release of activists who had been jailed.
According to the group’s Twitter account, which was published by the news website Al Arabiya, hackers from the so-called “Black Reward” gang have threatened to release the company’s internal data.
According to the report, the group offered the Iranian government 24 hours to free incarcerated political prisoners and protestors.
Additionally, they threatened to release information that would have an impact on the “dirty nuclear project of the Mullahs’ regime.”
Iran’s anti-government demonstrations are now in their fifth week after Mahsa Amini’s passing on September 16 sparked widespread unrest.
Since then, security forces have carried out a bloody assault on demonstrators around the nation, murdering dozens of them, wounding hundreds, and imprisoning thousands more.
