Iran Bans Arstechnica

12 Oct, 2010

Iran has banned one of the oldest tech news websites, Arstechnica reported that Iranian users are no longer able to access the site.

Arstechnica says this happened after the site published second piece of coverage about the Stuxnet malware which hit Ithe workers of Iranian power plant. Iran said it had some evidence that “Israel” is behind the attack.

Arstechnica is owned by Condé Nast Publications the same owner of Wired Magazine who’s reporter is suspected of blatant violation of journalistic ethics by setting up a trap to Wikileaks suspected Whistle blower US army intelligence Bradley Manning and handing him over to the FBI.

Wired Magazine collaborator Adrian Lamo claimed that PFC Manning finally decided to be a whistleblower when he was ordered to process the arrest of Iraqi civilians who did nothing more than publish an academic paper about corruption in the Iraqi Provisional Governmet.

Condé Nast Publications also owns social media news sites Reddit.
