Israel’s national cyber chief officially acknowledges the country had thwarted a major cyber attack last month against its water systems, an assault widely attributed to arch-enemy Iran, calling it a “synchronized and organized attack” aimed at disrupting key national infrastructure.
Yigal Unna did not mention Iran directly, nor did he comment on the alleged Israeli retaliation two weeks later said to have shut down a key Iranian port.
He said, however, that recent developments have ushered in a new era of covert warfare, ominously warning that “cyber winter is coming.”
