We are not sure it's something to brag about, but an Iranian group called SOBH Cyber Jihad has claimed responsibility for the Cyber attack on the Bowman Avenue dam sluice gate. We should take all these threats seriously. But if these guys are high-fiving a "cyber attack" on a non-working, 20-foot sluice gate that dams what is essentially, in relative terms, a large puddle, this is a victory for freedom loving people everywhere.

Anyway, a NBC report says "An Iranian hactivist group has claimed responsibility for a cyberattack that gave it access to the control system for a dam in the suburbs of New York — an intrusion that one official said may be "just the tip of the iceberg." The group, SOBH Cyber Jihad, sent a message through another Iran-linked hacker outfit, Parastoo, promising that it would release the technical information that proves it was behind the 2013 breach, according to Flashpoint Intelligence." (See the NBC report.)

The actual message sent from SOBH Cyber Jihad was posted on Cryptome, a site run by John Young and Deborah Natsios that publishes various documents related to national security, intelligence and government secrecy:

RE : NYC DAM HACK
hereby we accept the responsibility of the attack to Bowman Avenue DAM about 20 miles from New York City used for flood control. back then we were warned by state-level power players not to go public with it for greater good . now that wsj published the headline there is no point in keeping the test and its IOCs a secret . we are recompiling a technical report release . instead of waiting , you can read our previous publication on attacks to DOE and several national labs here: https://cryptome.org/2015/09/SOBH-DOE.pdf meanwhile your Israeli counterparts can refer to a sample of our attacks
to their CI here : https://cryptome.org/2015/04/sobh/sobh-attacks-israel.htm
you have taken the terror , the harshest battle over power and the ugly struggle for "just more" to our doors within mideast . you will see the very same coming to you .
wait wait , you also have already seen this particularly in recent months..and "show must go on" . Happy New Year !
SOBH Cyber Jihad"
