(Jerusalem Post) Iran is responsible for a wave of computer attacks on US corporations, with targets including oil, gas and electricity companies, The New York Times reported Friday, citing American officials and corporate security experts.
The officials stated that the goal of the Iranian attacks is sabotage rather than espionage. The cyber attacks are seen as attempts to gain control of critical processing systems.
U.S. investigators have been probing the attacks for several months.
