A pro-Israeli hacker going by the name “Hannibal” claimed to release files that contained confidential information on Iran.
Hannibal said the files he has leaked were only a small percentage of the data in his possession.
“Today I’m leaking confidential information of the Iranian Army, Iranian government and citizens,” Hannibal wrote in a posting on Pastebin, a file-sharing website. “It’s nothing compared to what I have. This percentage is very small.”
He also claimed that he was “working on hacking into the computers of Iran’s nuclear facilities.”
This represents another foray by Hannibal into the ongoing cyber war, and follows shortly after his release last week of the Facebook passwords and credit card information of thousands of Saudi nationals.
