Ahmadinejad's blog hacked and defaced

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's Blog we dealt with last week has been hacked and defaced today. The defacement was notified to Zone-H by a group of crackers known as "Y Underground" that put down the website (based on Windows 2000 + IIS 5.0) using an attack reportedly based on a web application loophole (uhm... yes, another one).

The interesting thing is that the Y Underground group is from Iran, and apparently they chose their own president's personal blog to post messages in support of Iranian nuclear campaign . At first they posted a deface page reporting only phrases in Farsi (our mirror is related to this) , then they "updated" it some time later, posting also an English slogan in support of Iran's wishes of nuclear glory.

Weird, isn't it?

The Whole Story
