Their SMS partner probably now has a relationship with a local
telecommunications services company. I'm not sure it's anymore dangerous
than if the messages were from an international number since it's all
equally accessible to interception, which is not to say there isn't
concerns in that regards. I should hope those codes wouldn't be generated
by a service accessible by Iranian authorities.
