U.S. targeted Iran with retaliatory cyberattacks - News Summed Up

U.S. targeted Iran with retaliatory cyberattacks


The intrusion occurred the same day President Donald Trump called off a strike on Iranian targets such as radar and missile batteries. Multiple computer systems were targeted, according to people briefed on the operations, including those believed to have been used by an Iranian intelligence group that helped plan the tanker attacks. An additional breach, according to one person briefed on the operations, targeted other computer systems that control Iranian missile launches. Its effectiveness could be judged only if Iran tried to fire a missile and the launch failed. The Iranian attacks do more than just steal data and money; they also seek to delete data or take down entire networks.
