Telegram traffic from around the world took a detour through Iran

Recommended Posts

Data from the popular encrypted messenger app Telegram was hijacked by Iran’s state-owned telecommunications giant on Monday, a day before proposed protests over the country’s economic crisis.

 

The move looks to be a BGP hijack, a practice where an intermediary illegitimately takes over groups of IP addresses so data originally destined for one place can be forcefully sent to another.

 

Monday’s attacks were widely detected as they happened by Oracle’s InternetIntelligence and Cisco’s BGPMon.
