FBI Says Iranian Cyber Actors Responsible for Website Threatening U.S. Elections Officials!
The FBI and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) claim to have highly credible information indicating Iranian cyber actors almost certainly were responsible for the creation of a website called Enemies of the People, which contained death threats aimed at U.S. election officials in mid-December 2020.
The FBI has identified multiple domains, to include the main site, enemiesofthepeople.org, that contained personal information and photographs for a number of U.S. officials and individuals from private sector entities involved with the 2020 election. The FBI has confirmed the main site is currently inactive.
In addition, threatening emails were sent to the officials from the following email addresses:
The post-election creation of the Enemies of the People website demonstrates an ongoing Iranian intent to create divisions and mistrust in the United States and undermine public confidence in the U.S. electoral process. As referenced in Joint Cybersecurity Advisories AA20-296B and AA20-304A, and FBI FLASH Message ME-000138-TT, the FBI and CISA have previously warned that Iranian cyber actors were likely intent on influencing and interfering with the 2020 U.S. elections.
