INU – The Iranian regime’s cyber-police have arrested a man for selling software allowing users to access websites blocked by the regime from a website in Tehran.

Agents stormed the house in city’s western Shahriar district belonging to a man named as Narges, and seized computer equipment.

It later emerged that the site was being run by a second man named as Benham, 35, who had been using his computer selling VPN software.

West Tehran cyber-police chief Nourallahi told state-run outlets on Friday: “The cyber-police scrutinized the Internet and identified a website selling filter by-passing software.”

Attempting to by-pass Iran’s strict Internet controls was an offence under article 25 of the law, he said.
