Dubai: False earthquake alerts went off Wednesday on Android smartphones in Iran as the country continued to grapple with nationwide protests. Authorities gave conflicting accounts of the cause of the accident.
Col. Ramin Pashai, deputy head of Iran’s cyber police, told Iranian state television that only Android phones had received the false alarm.
He blamed the testing procedure at state-owned Iran Mobile Telecommunications Company for the warning.
Meanwhile, Iran’s state news agency IRNA called the incident a hack and said, “This message is false. Don’t leave your homes.”
Google, which provides Android software, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Iran has seen a string of hacks since the September 16 death of a 22-year-old woman named Mahsa Amini after being detained by the country’s morality police.
Her killing sparked months of protests that now include calls for the overthrow of Iran’s clerical rule, one of the biggest challenges Tehran has faced since the chaotic years that followed the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
