“The photograph is a link to a web page that can attach a malicious software. This link is currently down. But, after the web page was investigated it was determined its owner is Energy Environment Advisory Enterprise, a legal entity located in Bahrain that offers services at Saudi Arabia’s oil fields” informs the ministry.
