Iran Thwarted Cyber Attack Over Holidays

The southern province of Hormozgan experienced many large industrial websites getting attacked by a common cyber attack recently. Fortunately, the malware was detected before it can do any major damage to their systems.

Iran Thwarted Cyber Attack Over Holidays

Bandar Abbas Tavanir, a power company in Hormozgan, has been the target for many cyber attacks recently. Luckily, highly trained and skilled Iranian computer experts were able to catch the malware before it did any major damage on their systems.

Iran isn’t new to cyber attacks such as these. In 2010, an extremely powerful and dangerous computer virus called Stuxnet was able to get into their systems and disrupted the country’s nuclear power plant.

One expert who was involved in fighting off the recent attack said the malware had Stuxnet-like features, but they were able to stop it this time as compared to 2010.
Although years ago, the most common form of an attack was with weaponry and violence; nowadays, it’s all virtual. Anyone who has any experience working in the computer industry knows how much damage and information you can steal if you are able to hack into a system, therefore that is the new form attack.
