Iran Threatens to Retaliate for Cyber Attacks


The Iranian government has said it will reciprocate any cyber attacks launched against the country's computers systems and networks.

"The Ahlul Bayt news agency reports that a warning was launched by Brigadier General Ali Shadmani, the head of the Operations Department of the Iranian Armed Forces, who said that mounting any cyber attack against Iran would be a risk for US, UK and Israel," writes The Inquirer's Lucian Constantin.

"Back in June the Iranian Armed Forces announced plans to launch a cyber command, but experts don't believe the country has a lot of resources, human or otherwise, in this area yet," Constantin writes.
