Earlier this evening Iranian hackers targeted the website for the Federal Depository Library Program.
A Google search of the FDLP indicates that the description of the website has been changed to a pro-Iranian message:
Clicking on the FDLP website itself at the time of this writing gives an error message:
Earlier this evening, however, the FDLP website had been replaced by a pro-Iranian web page featuring a picture of an Iranian fist punching President Trump in the mouth.
Rather than cowering in fear, however, Americans were left wondering just what the hell the Federal Depository Libraries Program was and what it does. A quick check of Wikipedia tells us that the FDLP is responsible for:
The Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) is a government program created to make U.S. federal government publications available to the public at no cost.
A laudable goal…I guess.
Iran’s response to the killing of one of their top generals thus far has been a series of ineffectual rocket attacks, and a high school hack job of the website of a government agency no one knew even existed.
The mullahs might want to step up their game just a tad.
