US blaming Iran for Persian Gulf cyberattacks

Published: 10.12.12, 07:04 / Israel News

A former US government official says American authorities firmly believe that Iranian hackers, likely supported by the Tehran government, were responsible for recent cyberattacks against oil and gas companies in the Persian Gulf and that they appeared to be in retaliation

for the latest round of US sanctions against the country.

 

The former official spoke to The Associated Press shortly before Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, in a speech to business leaders in New York City on Thursday night, became the first US official to publicly acknowledge the computer-based assaults. He called them probably the most destructive cyberattacks the private sector has seen to date. (AP)
