Iran’s train services were delayed after a cyberattack hit the country’s rail network. On Friday, hackers posted fake messages about train delays and cancellations on display boards at stations across the country.

The hackers even listed the phone number for the office of the country’s supreme leader, advising people to call for more information. They posted messages such as “long delay because of cyberattack” and “canceled.”

However, a spokesperson for the railway company said the disruption did not cause any immediate issues for the train services.

It is still unclear whether the reported attack caused any damage or disruptions to Iran’s computer and internet systems. So far, no group has taken responsibility for the hack.
