Banned Keywords to be Revised

Iran’s Judiciary system’s Internet Bureau has been reportedly reinvestigating the keywords that are banned in Iran and will soon announce the results of the investigations. After the new investigations, the ban on those websites that have been filtered by mistake will be lifted.

One of the ways websites get filtered in Iran is through the set of forbidden keywords that Iran’s IT ministry gives to the ISPs. ISPs should then block the websites that contain those keywords.
