U.N. e-mail addresses leaked, and guess what?

I read a major tech. magazine today, which reported that around 170 e-mail addresses were leaked to Pastebin from employees of the U.N.. It seems that the digital war between two countries has started: Iran and Israel are even fighting over social media. This is pure speculation, but it may be that the government of Iran may be behind the leak. Iran has a nuclear history, and Israel too. I don’t want to put any country in front, but Iran itself has a history of nuclear weapons, and this may be payback.
This ‘war’ is pretty interesting, because this is the first digital war that really utilizes the available social media and launching propaganda websites (this isn’t very new: North-Korea does this since several years).

This war is the perfect example of combining digital war with weapons. It’s like watching small little kids fighting over chocolate(Gaza border) and a video game(Twitter) at the same time. But the deaths caused by such conflicts is always very sad. But still: is the digital war coming to other countries?
Who knows.
