Tehran believes Washington could be behind recent cyber attacks on Iran
The United States may have been involved in organizing recent cyber attacks on Iran’s infrastructure, said the head of the Civil Resistance Organization, Goliam Reza Jalali, on Friday, TASS reports.
"Our analysis shows that, most likely, the attacks were carried out from the United States," Tasnim quoted the agency as saying.
At the same time, Jalali added that "determining the exact origin of cyber attacks is a complex process that takes a lot of time."
On February 8, there were recorded interruptions in the Internet in Iran. The representative of the Organization of Infrastructure Communications at the Ministry of Information and Communication Technologies of Iran, Sajjad Bonabi, said that the country was subjected to a cyber attack.
On December 11, 2019, the Minister of Information and Communication Technologies of Iran, Mohammad Jawad Azari Jahromi, said that the country's government infrastructure was subjected to a powerful cyber attack, which was able to repel.
The most famous case of a cyber attack directed against Iran is considered to be the Stuxnet virus, with the help of which in 2010 an attack was carried out on an Iranian nuclear facility in Natanz. Tehran and a number of Western publications have claimed that American and Israeli intelligence services are behind the development of the virus.
