Hello and welcome to the details of News agency: Iran says one of two cyber-attack targets was country’s ports and now with the details
TEHRAN, Oct 16 — One of the targets of large cyber-attacks on two Iranian government institutions this week was the electronic infrastructure of the country’s ports, an Iranian news agency reported today.
The government’s Information Technology Organisation yesterday reported the hacking of two institutions without giving details on the targets or perpetrators. The second target of the attacks on Monday and Tuesday is yet to be identified.
“Sworn enemies have been trying for some time to carry out cyberattacks,” the semi-official Tasnim news agency quoted a statement by the Ports and Maritime Organisation as saying.
The statement said deterrent measures had been taken to prevent an interruption in the “organisation’s missions.”
It gave no further details.
Following the cyber-attacks, several government bodies temporarily shut down internet services as a precaution, Abolghasem Sadeghi, from the government’s Information Technology Organisation, told state TV on Thursday.
He said the attacks, which he described as “important and on a large scale,” were under investigation.
Iran says it is on high alert for online assaults, which it has blamed in the past on the United States and other foreign states, including Israel.
US officials said in October 2019 that the United States had carried out a cyber-attack on Iran after drone strikes on Saudi oil facilities, which Washington and Riyadh blamed on Tehran. Iran denied involvement in the attacks, which were claimed by Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi movement.
The United States and other Western powers have also accused Iran of trying to disrupt and break into their networks. — Reuters
