The German domestic intelligence agency has warned critics of the Iranian leadership living in Germany about the threat of cyberespionage against them. 

Germany's Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) on August 10 warned Iranian dissidents that they might be targeted by the Charming Kitten online espionage group.

Charming Kitten works by building trust with victims to the extent that they expose data on themselves and their online contacts in Iran, the BfV said.

The attacks are mainly directed at dissident organizations and professionals who have contact with them, including legal practitioners, journalists or human rights activists, in Iran and abroad.
