Iran recruiting hackers

Iran is Recruiting Hacker Warriors for its Cyber Army to Fight 'Enemies'
Full Article on Fox News

Iran is gearing up for a cyberwar campaign after being hit with coordinated, sophisticated cyberattacks last year that reportedly crippled its Natanz nuclear enrichment facility.
...
Part of the plan involves actively recruiting hackers, who will likely earn top toman (Iranian currency) for their work.
...
Sazegara said he has heard the regime pays up to the equivalent of $10,000 per month for computer experts. That’s small change for a government compared to the cost of waging military warfare

Re: Iran recruiting hackers

Given the nature of the country though, it would seem pertinent to mention the "costs" to be incurred by the "hacker" should he or she fail at the assigned tasks.

Re: Iran recruiting hackers

I thought "equivalent to $10,000/month" was already converted.
