Info:
An Iran-based company run by Mohammad Saeed Ajily, who was indicted in April 2016, along with Mohammad Reza Rezakhah, for his alleged involvement in a conspiracy to illegally obtain and export to Iran, without required export license, U.S.-origin proprietary software with military applications in aerodynamic analysis and design of projectiles;

Between 2007 and 2013, Rezakhah and a third co-conspirator, Nima Golestaneh, allegedly used compromised servers in Canada and the Netherlands to mask their identity and location and to launch computer intrusions against a number of companies, including a Vermont-based engineering software firm, in order to steal proprietary software packages and strip them of their encryption to allow their use by Iranian entities; the conspirators allegedly operated under the company name “Dongle Labs.”;

The stolen software, some of which had applications in rocket design and GPS-guided weapons, was allegedly sold to military and research entities under Iran’s Ministry of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics (MODAFL), including Malek Ashtar University, and to Tehran University, Sharif University of Technology, K.N. Toosi University of Technology, and Electro-Optics Division; Ajily reportedly used several companies to carry out the conspiracy, including Andisheh Vesal Middle East Company (AVME);
