Iran: Protesters hacked Azadi Stadium’s website

A number of protesters hacked the Azadi Stadium’s website on September 6, 2017, after Iranian women were not allowed to enter the stadium to watch the football match between the national teams of Iran and Syria the day before. This is while Syrian women had entered the stadium to watch the game.

The ISNA news agency reported, the website of Azadi Stadium has been hacked. The hackers have posted a photo of Syrian women among spectators inside the stadium on the homepage of this website. The title on the photo read, “Shame on you, brothers! That’s all.”

ISNA noted that the Azadi Stadium authorities initially denied the hack but subsequently said that the website had undergone some problem for a while. (The state-run ISNA news agency – September 6, 2017)
