Another IRGC Cyber ​​Warfare Commander exposed


The photo of Reza Salarvand, who heads one of the units of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s cyber hacking wing, was released in the media.

Last year, Iran International released a facial composition of Salarvand obtained by hacktivist group Lab-Doukhtegan (Sealed Lips), and the new photo — first released on Tuesday by an account dubbed 3ackd0or — confirmed his identity.

He is the head of Intelligence Group 13, which appears to be a subgroup within the Shahid Kaveh unit, headed by an IRGC cyberwarfare commander, Hamidreza Lashkarian (Lashgarian).

Salarvand’s team was responsible for creating a database of cyberattack targets, including cargo ships, gas stations, and maritime control centers in the US and elsewhere.

The 30-year-old holds a bachelor’s degree in information technology engineering from the South Branch of Tehran’s Azad University with a below-average grade of 13, according to his BS certificate, also published by Lab-Doukhtegan.

On Monday Iran International published photos of key Iranian actors in global cyber attacks linked to various state intelligence agencies in Tehran.

Last week, Albania has severed diplomatic relations with Iran and his diplomats were expelled and his security forces immediately entered the embassy premises and searched for evidence.

The United States imposed sanctions on Iran’s intelligence ministry and its minister, and NATO also expressed support for its member state Albania.
