A new report sheds light on why the Ashiyane Digital Security Team, a group of hackers known for defacing Sands Bethlehem casino website, mysteriously shut down their online forum in August 2018. The Recorded Future reported that the Ashiyane Forum was closed after the government discovered that forum members were running online gambling sites, which are strictly illegal in Iran. ADST leader Behrooz Kamalian was reportedly arrested last summer in relation to these sites but were already released.
