nk497 writes "A boastful Iranian hacker has claimed sole responsibility for the Comodo security certificate attack, saying it had nothing to do with his government. The 21-year-old claimed via a note on PasteBin, 'I'm not a group of hacker, I'm single hacker with experience of 1,000 hackers.' While some researchers believed his claims, saying the media had accepted Comodo's claims that the attack was from the Iranian government too easily, others said it was impossible to tell if the hacker was real, or a PR move by Iran."
