Gas Stations Across Iran Targeted by Hacktivist Group

A group called “Predatory Sparrow” claimed to have disabled the majority of gas stations across Iran in a cyberattack. In their statement, they cited aggression from the Islamic Republic and its proxies as the reason for the attack. Iranian state-run media reported disruptions at gas stations shortly after the group’s announcement. Iranian officials stated that about 60% of the gas stations in the country were experiencing issues, but they expected the problem to be fixed by the end of the day. The Predatory Sparrow group has previously targeted gas stations, the railway system, and steel plants in Iran and has been linked to Israel by some reports. The group’s capabilities have been acknowledged by experts, who consider them a significant player in the field of cyberattacks.
