Tyrant-taunting hacking collective Anonymous has posted a torrent file of more than 10,000 e-mails lifted from Iranian government servers.
Many of the 10,365 messages are correspondence over visa requests sent from Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
An explanation of the action addressed to the "Noble People of Iran" from Anonymous said: "We now how great you are. You have been killed, jailed, tortured and silenced by the illegal regime which has hijacked your country for the past decades, and yet you still rose up last year against a force you knew meant you harm. They may kill one person every eight hours but they can't kill your fighting spirit. They can't kill your freedom. Know that we support you. Know that you are not alone."
Anonymous said it wanted to demonstrate it could get into Iranian government servers. “I don’t know why the Islamic regime keeps providing money to their cyber army while they can't secure their most important mail server,” an Anonymite said, according to thinq_
