Russia isn't alone in its campaign to spread fake news. Iran was one of the early adopters in the world of made-up current affairs designed to spread disinformation and discredit legitimate media. One of its main targets in recent years has been the BBC. The news organization's journalists have faced harassment to the point the BBC filed a complaint with the United Nations last year. On Tuesday, an Israeli cybersecurity company claimed to have found a handful of websites that have been impersonating BBC Persian for seven years.
One is bbcpersian.net, which remains online today. The site's design is very close to that of the BCC, and some stories could, on the face of it, pass as real. Most stories, however, are anti-BBC articles or posts from other outlets that the BBC is accused of ignoring. It also includes original videos, alleging faults in news coverage by the Persian BBC. One example headline, translated into English from the original, reads, "The BBC 'weaving lies' in order to destroy Islam and the Islamic republic." Another read,"The BBC's important news: the divorce of two Hollywood actors."
The lead story on Wednesday is entitled, "The Persian BBC attack on the Hijab: beating a hollow drum." Accompanied by a cartoon of a devil-tailed television attacking a woman's hijab, the teaser reads, "As the Persian BBC is a British royal news agency and seeks to spread Western and colonial culture, it opposes and conflicts with any sort of original Iranian and Islamic culture."
According to Israel-based cybersecurity firm ClearSky, which detailed the fakes in a 52-page report Wednesday, the sites have been running since 2011. To spread the fake news further, Facebook and Telegram pages to support the counterfeit sites were set up, though they've been inactive in recent months.
According to a report unearthed by ClearSky, Javidarabshahi was allegedly in charge of the Basij movement in a number of universities and colleges, and ran the website hezbolahnews[.]ir. Forbes attempted to contact Javidarabshahi via his Gmail emails listed in the website registration details, as well as the Iranian embassy in London, but did not receive responses at the time of publication.
The BBC is facing increasing pressure in Iran. In recent years, staff were named in fake news accusing them of sexual impropriety or acts that are punishable by the death penalty in Iran, whilst reporters' family members have been interrogated, according to the broadcaster. In October 2017, the BBC sent an appeal to the U.N.'s Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, after Iran launched a criminal investigation into 152 BBC Persian staff, former employees and contributors for "conspiracy against national security."
Iran and hacker crews operating in the country have also been increasingly active in international cyberespionage. Wednesday also saw the release of a report from U.S. security company Symantec, which detailed an Iran-based group it dubbed Chafer. It targeted, amongst other organizations, airlines and aircraft services. Just last year, Forbes uncovered evidence Deloitte had been targeted by Iranian hackers using a fake Facebook profile.

Those hackers believed to be allied to Syria's government have deployed a fairly sophisticated array of powerful spyware with names like DarkComet, backdoor.bruet, and Blackshades. Available on the Internet, these malware are used to infiltrate the personal computers of opposition figures and rights activists and send back information on their friends and contacts as well as passwords, cybersecurity experts say.
Monitor journalism changes lives because we open that too-small box that most people think they live in. We believe news can and should expand a sense of identity and possibility beyond narrow conventional expectations.
A fake and heavily manipulated video depicting Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy circulated on social media and was placed on a Ukrainian news website by hackers Wednesday before it was debunked and removed.
The national television station Ukraine 24 confirmed that hackers managed to send the fake Zelenskyy message across live television on the scrolling-text news crawl known as "the ticker," and the video showed up briefly on the news station's website. It was the work of "enemy hackers," the station said.
The messages the hackers managed to broadcast through Ukraine 24 urged Ukrainians to stop fighting and give up their weapons. They also falsely stated that Zelenskyy had fled Kyiv, according to the Atlantic Council's Eurasia researcher Roman Osadchuk.
