Iran Nuclear Facilities Attacked By Hackers
Iranian government always tried to stay away from the international community and keep their own business within their territory, without having to bow or ask help from any western developed countries. They did everything they had to do to keep their secrets, no matter if it means banning the use of the Internet or jailing anyone gets in their way. Recently, Iran got a little bit frustrated when they’ve discovered a virus named Flame, which they claims to be attacking on their nuclear facilities for over 5 years.
BBC called the Flame virus as“one of the most complex threats ever discovered,” after the Stuxnet attack. Now Iran says that this continuous attack is a ”massive cyber attack” done by the team of the US, Israel and the UK against their nuclear facilities. Iran’s Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi recently stated the situation during an interview on TV.
Iran has been keeping most of the details about their nuclear program to a minimum and it seems like there is something going on. Why would they consider this as an attack if they doesn’t have anything to hide?
