The Iranian Cyber Army Strike's Again

Yesterday the Iranian Cyber Army found its second major target in Baidu, China's main search engine. The first major target was the very popular microblogging site Twitter in the last week of December. (source)

This attack on these sites brings to fore yet again the problem of Internet security which at best seems to remain just enough until the next hack or crack.

This strike directs the people coming to the site the armies own page with Farsi writing and the Iran flag. (as shown in pic) As of now they have not taken any user data, their intention seems to be only to raise public awareness (in a very anti-social manner).

The fine print under the flag mocks the US by saying they think they control and manage internet access but now its the Iranians that have put the US in the embargo list and not the other way around.
