(Washington Examiner) The Department of Homeland Security warned of a recent cyberattack directed at the agency in an “emergency directive” issued Tuesday.

“[A]ttackers have redirected and intercepted web and mail traffic, and could do so for other networked services,” according to the directive.

The attack is believed to be out of Iran, according to ZDNet.

The emergency directive requires all employees to take multiple login precautions, including changing passwords and implementing multifactor authentication, and all agency-related domains will be audited.
