Iran’s national TV stream hacked for the second time in a week

A hacktivist group known as Adalat Ali (Ali’s Justice) has hijacked the web stream of Iran’s state-owned television station, the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB), in order to broadcast an anti-regime message earlier this week.

The incident took place on Tuesday, February 1, and hit Telewebion, IRIB’s web-based TV and radio streaming platform.

Another incident also took place last Tuesday, on January 27, when a group of unknown hackers hijacked the main IRIB TV channel signal for around 10 seconds to show images of Maryam and Masoud Rajavi, the leaders of the Mujahideen Khalq Organisation (MKO), the primary political opposition force to Iran’s Khamenei government.

The hijack lasted only 10 seconds, and a voice was heard saying: “Salute to Rajavi, death to Khamenei!”
