Iran: Internet Users Cut Off From Email


Iranian internet users are once again unable to access their email today.

The Khabar-on-line website reports that users are again cut off from their email, and no one is willing to take responsibility for it.

Meanwhile, internet access is also being disrupted due to the blocking of VPN ports and HTTP protocols.

Access to the internet and email service providers such as Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail has been impossible in recent days, and Iranian authorities have been emphasizing their concern over the lack of security on the web.

Reza Taghipour, Minister of Communications and Technology, said on Saturday: “Due to the lack of safety and security measures, the country sustains more harm from this technology [the internet] than benefits.”

He insisted that the World Wide Web must not be trusted and poses numerous threats. He also alleged that Google provides the CIA with all the information it gathers.

Many Iranian officials have expressed fear that all of the information that users enter into the internet can be used against the regime.
