Flashpoint has validated recently leaked documents that indicate Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) was operating a state-sponsored ransomware campaign through an Iranian contracting company called “Emen Net Pasargard” (ENP) (aka “Imannet Pasargad,” “Iliant Gostar Iranian,” “Eeleyanet Gostar Iraniyan”). These three documents were originally leaked between March 19 and April 1, 2021, by the Iranian dissident group “Lab Dookhtegan,” famous for providing highly reputable intelligence on Iranian state-sponsored cyber programs.
