Just days after President Trump ordered an air
strike that killed Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem
Soleimani
, a U.S. government website was defaced by a hacking group
claiming to be from Iran.

The hackers defaced the Federal Depository Library Program, fdlp.gov, website with a picture of bleeding Trump as he’s being punched in the face for an Iranian Revolutionary Guard and left a message saying, “in the name of god. >>>>> Hacked By Iran Cyber Security Group HackerS … ;)<<<<<. This is only small part of Iran’s cyber ability ! We’re always ready,” the Daily Mail reported.

Iran has
vowed revenge for Soleimani’s death and on Sunday, the Department of Homeland
Security (DHS) issued a bulletin warning
against possible retaliation, including cyberattacks.

But
officials can’t confirm that the hack was done by Iranian actors. “We are
aware the website of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) was defaced
with pro-Iranian, anti-U.S. messaging,” said Sara Sendek, a spokesperson
for DHS Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) spokeswoman
Sara Sendek told
CNN. “At this time, there is no confirmation that this was the action of
Iranian state-sponsored actors. The website was taken off line and is no longer
accessible. CISA is monitoring the situation with FDLP and our federal
partners.”
