Profiling "Nedasites" - A DDoS Attack Tool Campaign Aiming to Target Iran Prior to the 2009 Election - An OSINT Analysis

July 12, 2021

I've recently stumbled upon a unique DDoS tool which is basically enticing users into downloading it and launching DDoS attacks against a pre-defined list of Iran-based government and various other Iran-based targets which appears to have been originally released during the 2009 election in Iran.

In this post I'll provide actionable intelligence and discuss in-depth the campaign including the actual tool and provide the actual list of targeted URLs including the actual MD5 for the malicious DDoS tool and discuss in-depth the actual crowd-sourcing DDoS campaign which was originally lauched during the 2009 election in Iran.

It appears that back in 2009 a tiny group of folks including companies actually organized an online spree to help and support Iran's activists and protestors with technologies and access to free service which basically violates the law and should be considered a dangerous precendent in the context of assisting Iran-based activists and protestors. Therefore I've decided to take a deeper look inside the trend that took place internationally back in the 2009 Iran-based election and offer practical and relevant technical and actionable intelligence information on the actual infrastructure behind the campaign including its participants.

Related domains and URLs known to have been involved in the campaign:

Something else that's also worth emphasizing on in terms of the Iran 2009 election is that the U.K's GCHQ has also been busy attempting to track down protestors including activists and has been busy working on an election specific and GCHQ owned URL shortening service which I managed to profile and expose here including the following still active Twitter accounts and URLs known to have been involved in the GCHQ campaign to monitor and track down Iran 2009 election protesters and activists:

Dear blog readers,

Following a series of successful data mining and OSINT enrichment successes in the face of OSINT and Law Enforcement operation called "Uncle George" including my recent attempt to take down approximately 3,000 ransomware emails which was quite a success including the recent and ongoing publication of various compilations of currently active high-profile cybercriminal email addresses and XMPP/Jabber accounts I had the privilege to get several of my blog posts censored and basically taken offline courtesy of Google which is actually good news in the face of the basic news that I'm currently sitting have been and will continue to be sitting on a treasure trove of threat intelligence and cyber attack attribution information on current and emerging cyber threats including to get actual legal threats from various individuals who appear to have been busy closing down their Twitter and Facebook accounts including LinkedIn accounts meaning quite a success for the actual data mining and technical collection process where the ultimate goal here would be to assist U.S Law Enforcement and the U.S Intelligence Community on its way to track down and prosecute the cybercriminals.

Therefore after approximately 12 years of active one-man operation running one of the security industry's leading security publications which is my personal blog which I originally launched in December, 2005 when I was working on https://astalavista.com while I was studying in the Netherlands I've decided that the time has come to find an alternative medium to communicate the treasure trove of threat intelligence and OSINT information that I'm currently sitting on and have been sitting on throughout the past decade with the idea to show and present the crown jewels of my research to basically any sort of vetted and trusted client who's interested in my research and proven methodology for fighting and disrupting the bad guys in a systematic and efficient way throughout the past decade.

It's been a privilege and an honor to serve everyone's needs for approximately 12 years as an independent contractor running this blog where I've actually had the chance to meet and actually get to know some of the security industry's leading companies and actual folks working within the security industry and it will continue to be a privilege and an honor to know and work with them in the future.



What's next? Always feel free to approach me at my dancho.danchev@hush.com where you can direct your "keep up the good work" "keep it cool" and "keep up the good spirit" including to actually inquire about my expertise and how I can jump on board on your cybercrime research and threat intelligence including OSINT research and analysis project in terms of fighting cybercrime.











Awesome. 
Check this out in terms of my disappearance and possible kidnapping courtesy of Bulgaria's Law Enforcement in the form of an illegal arrest using a stolen ID from my place and actual home molestation courtesy of local police officers who basically escorted me and held me in another town for a period of couple of months.
