The officials also shared that the defense officials had been preparing such a cyber-response as a contingency plan for weeks before the attack.

Cybersecurity firms say Iran has elevated its offensive cyberattacks against the US government and its important infrastructure. Crowd Strike and Fire Eye, firms tracking these activities said, “in recent weeks, hackers believed to be working for the Iranian government have targeted U.S. government agencies, as well as sectors of the economy, including oil and gas.” They informed that the hackers have sent waves of spear-phishing emails as well.

It is yet to be surfaced if the hackers managed to get access to the targeted networks with the emails. The cyber offensive is the latest chapter in ongoing cyber operations between the U.S. and Iran.
