US Cyber Attacks on Iran


Hundreds of systems including those belonging to Iranian Intelligence Group which involved in downing the drone of US & oil tankers were allegedly cyber-attacked by US Intelligence Group from Pentagon on early hours of Friday this week.

Reason for infiltrating into the networks of Iranian government officials was simple– to retaliate to the activities of Iran and warn then against more such serious consequences if they fail to mend their ways on the international arena.

Cybersecurity Insiders has learned that the intrusion was planned on the same day when the US President Donald Trump canceled off the surgical attacks on Iranian targets including radar and missile batteries.

As the cyber attack was supposed to be under the threshold of the armed conflict it was not canceled at the last moment by the trump administration.

Yahoo News was the first resource to report about the online operation conducted by the Pentagon in the early hours of Friday.

A source from The New York Times said that more such operations will be underway with or without the knowledge of the President.

Christopher Krebs, the director of the Department of Homeland Security- Cyber division failed to acknowledge the attacks on Saturday. But he did confirm that such attacks will be on rising.

US Military and Intelligence officials are alleged to be behind the attacks, as the government from Iran is yet to ascertain the news.

More details will be updated shortly!
