Iran may have committed cyber-attack on BBC
Just days after watchdog group Reporters Without Borders named Iran as one of the "Enemies of the Internet," the BBC is now claiming to be the victim of a cyber-attack possibly perpetrated by the Iranian authorities.

The news source says that two of its satellite feeds into Iran were jammed earlier this month coinciding with a denial-of-service attack in which some parts of the BBC's e-mail and Internet services were unavailable. The director-general of the BBC Mark Thompson will be giving a speech to the Royal Television Society shortly, in which he plans to explain how the Iranian authorities were involved in the attack, according to the BBC.

If the satellite feeds were going into Iran then I don't see a problem if Iran is attempting to avoid western propaganda being foisted on it's populace. After all Press TV was stopped over here.

Mighty coincidence don't you think?

That's a good point.
