US launches Cyberattack against Iran

Despite the call off of direct military strike against Iran by the U.S. President,  Donald Trump, United States Cyber Command on Thursday reportedly launched an operation against an Iranian spy group with ties to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.



The Irania Group is alleged to have supported the attacks carried out on two tanker ships last upper week.

Yahoo news reported former CIA official confirming the cyber attack on Iran 

Trump has given significant autonomy to CYBERCOM, the US military's command for cyber-related operations, and authorized it to conduct offensive attacks against foreign adversaries during his presidency. The new strategy allows CYBERCOM to conduct some of its operations without consulting White House officials or other government agencies.
