Iran foiled nearly 200 cyber-attacks in month to elections: Official

Tehran, IRNA – Head of Iran’s Civil Defense Organization Brigadier General Gholamreza Jalali says Iran has foiled nearly 200 cyber-attacks in the month leading up to the recent parliamentary elections.

In an interview with Iranian television on Monday, Jalali said some 4 or 5 major cyber-attacks were carried out during the same period but were foiled by the experts in Iran’s Intelligence Ministry, Civil Defense Organization, and the Ministry of Communications.

“In the month leading up to the elections, we witnessed nearly 200 cyber-attacks of all kinds, both small and large ones,” he said.

Jalali added that during the last 6 months, at least 100 distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks occurred, most of which were carried out by foreign adversaries with the aim of disrupting public services.
