The Iran State TV Was Hacked In Live Broadcast: What the Masked Protestors Had to Say

Online hacking is unfortunately a common occurrence but hacking a TV station is a rare feat – and that’s exactly what happened to the Iran state TV on Saturday.

During their usual Saturday TV news bulletin, the hosts of the show disappeared from the screen and were replaced by a masked protestor asking viewers to “join us and rise up”.

The pirate stream showed images of Mahsa Amini, the 22-year-old woman who died in custody three days after her arrest, on September 16, and whose treatment at the hands of the morality police sparked wide-spread protests in Iran.

The hackers also showed Iran’s supreme leader with a target on his head and a caption that said “our youth’s blood is dripping off your paws.”

The pirate transmission ended after a few seconds. A group called “Adalat Ali”, or Ali’s Justice, took claim for the attack.

Right now, according to the BBC, civil rights groups in Iran say that more than 150 people have died since the protests began on September 17.
