Iran to introduce cyberwarfare crack teams
Telegraph UK ^ | Jan. 21, 2011

Posted on 01/21/2011 3:25:21 PM PST by nuconvert

The Iranian authorities have promised to "put cyberpolice all over the country" as it comes under threat from online dissent at home and computer sabotage from abroad.

The country's head of police, Ismael Ahmadi Moghaddam, said Iran had to stamp out "defamation and mischief" at the opening of a new headquarters in Qom, the religious centre of the country.

He gave few details of his plans, but his words suggests he intends to continue developing the Chinese-style model already in place of using a mixture of technological censorship using keywords and large numbers of trained police to monitor websites.

He may also be referring to Iran's attempts to boost its defences against cyberwarfare from abroad. Leading politicians, including President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, have reluctantly admitted that the country's nuclear programme was affected by a mysterious computer word named Stuxnet which western antivirus experts had already discovered was infecting computers throughout Asia, including Iran.

Subsequent analyses showed that it was highly sophisticated and appeared to target and disable uranium enrichment centrifuges operated through computers manufactured by the German firm Siemens of the sort used in Iran.

State issued certificates of sufficient stupidity which qualifies them to be Muslims.

I would think that Mad Mo’ would find anything to do with the electron to be haraam. Let the infidels do it.

In other news, some intrascendent Iranian computer security experts have defected to western nations. Nothing to see there. (I hope that’s what’s happening, at least)

So how does the camel figure into the program? Bug sniffing camels? Will they be able to retrain from bung sniffing to bug sniffing in time to make a difference?

Thanks nuconvert.
as it comes under threat from online dissent at home and computer sabotage from abroad
My dream, if I may share here, is that Ahmednutjob gets capped by a midget in a clown suit, who only uses one shot to do so. And then makes his getaway in a clown car.

They all do seem to have man hands. Perhaps that coverup is all for the better in this case.

Those are not Iranians. Iranian women typically don't cover their faces

They typically wear pants, a coat or jacket that is about mid-thigh to knee-length, and a scarf on their head.

It has been my experience that Iranian women are, in general, pretty good looking too. And smart. (at least the westernized ones)

Too bad for them who live in Iran.

You are right. Actually the picture is of Afghanistan women voting, but I couldn’t resist.

I will say this. Phillips crack team of “Digital Stream” HDTV was from S.Korea. IRAN is probably being led down a ridiculous road.

Yeah, that would be nice, and would pay a lot of midget hitmen.
