The so-called Iranian Cyber Army also took credit last month for an attack on TechCrunch's European website. In that incident, the group installed a page on TechCrunch's site that redirected visitors to a server that bombarded their PCs with exploits in an attempt to install malicious software."
Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves
up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.
