Iran’s mullahs try to launch an electronic war against U.S. President Donald Trump with the aim of removing him from power. However, this is an effort that is apparently doomed to fail.
The Iranian war comes as the U.S. prepares to hold a new presidential election. Trump will face competition in the election from Joe Biden, the Democratic candidate in the election.
Iran wages its electronic war against Trump through a number of hackers who stage electronic attacks on accounts and organizations participating in the election.
Microsoft speaks and Iran denies
Multinational technology company Microsoft said on September 10 that its cyber security specialists had discovered multiple cyber attacks from hackers who work for Iran, Russia and China.
It said the attacks targeted persons and organizations that will participation in the election, within the campaigns of both Biden and Trump.
The company revealed that among the people targeted by the hackers were advisors or major American political parties and think tanks.
Nevertheless, Iran denied the accusations made by the experts of Microsoft.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman described these accusations as mere silly allegations.
He added that these allegations are baseless.
Iran does not care about who will be in the White House after the election, the Foreign Ministry spokesman said.
He added that Iran only wants the U.S. to abide by the rules of international law and stop interfering in Iran’s internal affairs.
Hacking by the mullahs
The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman even accused the U.S. of interfering in the elections of other countries over the years.
He said the U.S. had deposed the elected government of Mohammad Mosaddegh in 1953.
Some people considered these remarks as an attempt by Iran to justify its interference in the U.S. election.
This was not the first time the U.S. accused the Iranian regime of hacking sites affiliated to American elections.
In October 2019, Microsoft said Iranian hackers had tried to hack the emails of some American officials.
