IRAN BLAMED FOR HACK­ING MPS’ EMAILS

Computer Active (UK) - - News -

Iran has been blamed for the hack on Par­lia­ment in June that ac­cessed 90 email ac­counts, in­clud­ing 30 used by MPS. An un­pub­lished in­tel­li­gence re­port seen by The Times points the fin­ger at the Ira­nian Revo­lu­tion­ary Guard, set up in 1979 to de­fend Iran against for­eign in­ter­fer­ence. The at­tack, pre­vi­ously at­trib­uted to Rus­sia and North Korea, is be­lieved to be Iran’s first sig­nif­i­cant act of cy­ber­war­fare against Bri­tain.
