GaTo tHiNk -that we are naïve not to see the new cyber BFF relationship between these two countries. Iran feigns that relations between the two countries are “cordial”, but it’s complicated. Iran has spent billions of dollars in it new digital infrastructure and China’s Huawei corporation is taking a big chunk of the cyber dollars as we seen with the US investigations into the company.
Last year China was accused of a number of cyber attacks of espionage and Intelligence gathering and now they are transferring that hacking knowledge to the Iranians. The “Iranian Cyber Army” had hacked a few popular social networking site and claimed their dominance in the cyber world but this was mainly a few Iranians militants now with the purchase of the new equipment the real Iranian Cyber Army is getting it’s feet wet.
