Iran Denies Role in Cyberattacks

Iran’s officials have denied any role in recent cyberattacks against Saudi Aramco and other oil companies in the Persian Gulf, as suggested by the U.S. officials, saying they would welcome a probe of the case. The devastating attacks against the oil companies were centered on a computer virus named “Shamoon.” The Iranians in turn are accusing the U.S. officials for spreading false and “politically motivated” allegations.

“We interpret the issue politically and in light of U.S. domestic issues as well as the (U.S. presidential) election,” said Mahdi Akhavan Bahabadi, secretary of the National Center of Cyberspace. (ISNA, 14 October)

Iran has not yet commented on the allegations of another set of cyberattacks by Iranian hackers against major U.S. banks.

I'm sorry the pictures I post make you ashamed and angry.

A friendly suggestion: if you insist on insulting people, at least learn how to spell their name.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. The US has been orchestrating cyberattack campaign against Iran and other countries for years. Why would they be surprised they get a dose of their medicine back at them?

Why would they Iran and not Russia, China or any other state?

Is it because for the US, Iran is a convenient enemy?

Not too long ago, the US and her allies were bragging about how their "experts" infected Iranian computers with Stuxnet..I guess they didn't think cyber warfare's a two way street?

They have more to loose as most of their infrastructure depend on computer networks to function.

Maybe it is new pretext, designed to enlist Saudi Arabia and Qatar to the war with Iran, like it was meant during the Mr. Ababsiar's allegations.
