Most of Iran government websites, about 90 percent, are moved and are now hosted on local server instead of foreign-based hosting providers. Iranian officials said that data was at risk and could be accessed at any moment. With this move they will reduce the cyber attacks and prevent affections from malicious software. In my opinion, all government websites of every country should be hosted on local servers. Iran was forced to do that because a malicious software named Stuxnet affected several computers and centrifuges used in its nuclear programme. Iran launched a special police unit to fight cyber crime, both hackers and crime committed on social networking websites like Facebook.
