MEHR News Agency: US behind recent major cyberattack on Iran: Jalali
According to Jalali, the recent cyberattack on the country’s infrastructure has been a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS), in which the normal traffic of a targeted server, service or network is disrupted by overwhelming the target or its surrounding infrastructure with a flood of Internet traffic.
“The attack was carried out by the US to assess the feasibility of future ones,” he said, “But it was deterred.”
“Designating the exact source and time of the attack is a time-consuming procedure but Iran’s Telecommunication Infrastructure company is working on the issue,” he added.
