US Accused Iran of Hacking Energy Companies

It seems that Iran is trying to prove it can be almost as menacing as China. The country has apparently hacked a number of the American energy companies. Press reports reveal that the hackers managed to access control system software in a number of oil, gas and power corporations. In response, the US officials went as far as to compare the attacks to cyber reconnaissance missions. The American authorities believe that the small scale attacks could be used to find the way to disrupt services later. In other words, in case of war, it is alleged that Iran would be able to target American infrastructure.

Security experts point out that in theory, attacks on control systems may also inflict crippling physical damage. For example, this may happen if the attack turns off safety features, like automatic lubrication of generators and other essential equipment.

Actually, this isn’t the first time the United States has accused Iran of hacker attacks. Earlier, Iran has allegedly targeted American banks with massive DDoS attacks. In addition, the country is said to be aggressively expanding its cyber warfare capabilities. It seems that Iran started taking cyber warfare more seriously after the country was struck by the Stuxnet virus.

No avatarUSA with their PRISM system, crimes against humanity, and god knows what else, shouldnt be accusing anyone of anything.

No self respecting person would ever believe anything the American government has to say. Politicians should read the story about the boy who cried wolf.

fusseltier avatarwhy would american utility companies and government agencies be using the internet instead of their own intranet or network?
they have the money, and they don't need to be on something that is open to everyone.
and power companies should use dialup or some other secure connection that is not in any way connected to anything public.
after all, with the speeds of wireless carriers, they can have more than enough rate for applications, and even at isdn level should be good enough to do anything they need to do remotely.
or at least use their own STL links or like what pharmacies use. (stl means studio transmitter link)
