The FBI is warning that an Iranian-linked cyber operation called “Enemies of the People” continues to threaten federal and state officials as well U.S. civilians.
When the FBI and the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency issued their initial warning about the Enemies of the People site in December 2020, the agencies noted that the main site – enemiesofthepeople.org – was disabled.
