Iran may be waging an escalating campaign of cyber attacks against US companies in response to American actions perceived as hostile, according to a US senator and cybersecurity analysts.
Iran’s government and its elite Quds Force were probably responsible for cyber attacks launched last week against JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Bank of America Corp, Senator Joseph Lieberman said yesterday in an interview on C-SPAN’s “Newsmakers” programme.
“I don’t believe that these were just hackers,” Lieberman, an independent from Connecticut who’s chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, said in the interview scheduled to air tomorrow. “I think that this was done by Iran and the Quds Force, which has its own developing cyber attack capacity.” – Gulf News
