A pro-Israeli hacker who identifies himself as "Hannibal" has released a series of Iranian documents Wednesday, claiming they were just a fraction of the "confidential" data in his posession. The 24 files include a memo on soldier training, the entire Iranian constitution, statistical data and other documents of this nature.
"Today I'm leaking confidential information of the Iranian Army, Iranian government and citizens," the hacker said in a message posted on Pastebin, a file-sharing website. "It's nothing compared to what I have. This percentage is very small.
"I'm working on hacking into the computers of Iran's nuclear facilities," he added.
The hacker gained notoriety last week when he released Saudis' Facebook passwords and credit card information.
One of the files that was attached to the message contained what Hannibal said is a password of an Iranian bank. Another file contained a list of phone numbers that apparently belong to employees of a bank or a government agency that has multipe branches in Tehran. A third featured a six-year-old report on the Iranian Health Ministry's decisions on nutrition. Despite the hacker's claims, the posted files did include confidential or valuable information.
Earlier, Palestinian hackers breached several Israeli websites, including those of the Israel Festival and the Dan Bus Company.
