• Potential Wiper Attacks From Iran (06/27/19)
    Data Breach Today reported this week that “Iran is increasing its malicious cyber activity against the U.S, which could manifest in ‘wiper’ (malware) attacks that render computers unusable” (according to a top U.S. cybersecurity official). In 2012, Saudi Aramco (oil giant) experienced a vicious wiper attack that disabled tens of thousands of workstations. Shipping in the region also appears to be threatened as earlier in June, “the U.S. accused Iran of planting magnetic mines that damaged commercial Japanese and Norwegian shipping vessels sailing in the Persian Gulf.” Christopher Krebs of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security recommended that U.S. institutions increase their basic cybersecurity defenses.
