Iran's new approach to e-government

This can’t be true, can it? The president of Iran has launched a pretty unremarkable blog. Well, unremarkable unless you happen to have an Israeli-registered IP address. In which case – and I stress, apparently – you get a little gift, in the form of a security attack. I’m not inclined to investigate this further, as I don’t typically volunteer for virus assaults, but the sources (O’Reilly, Scoble) seem reliable enough.

(Humble update: er… should have trusted my spider-sense. Of course it was a hoax.)
