U.S. cyber attacks against Iranian targets have not been successful, Iran’s telecoms minister said on Monday, within days of reports that the Pentagon launched a long-planned cyber attack to disable the country’s rocket launch systems.
“They try hard, but have not carried out a successful attack,” Mohammad Javad Azari-Jahromi, Iran’s minister for information and communications technology, said on social network Twitter.
“Media asked if the claimed cyber attacks against Iran are true,” he said. “We have been facing cyber-terrorism for a long time…Last year we neutralised 33 million attacks with the (national) firewall.”
