Iran Army Ready to Counter Cyber Attacks

"Iran's Army like other armies is ready to take part in cyber space and counter any cyber attack," Commander of the Iranian Army's Ground Forces Brigadier-General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan told IRNA on Monday.

"The instruments required for the presence in cyber space are being prepared by the Defense Industries of the Islamic Republic of Iran," he further explained.

"Cyber space is dominating the global community and the armies in the world are using it" by utilizing modern instruments, Pourdastan went on to say.

In early October, Iran said that it has detected and thwarted a cyber attack by the Stuxnet worm, which was supposedly created to infect Iranian industrial and nuclear sites.

"The virus, which Western media outlets claimed had attacked Iran's nuclear plant system, has been detected and controlled," Iranian Intelligence Minister Heidar Moslehi said.

The Stuxnet worm, first indentified by Iranian officials in June, is a malware designed to infect computers using Siemens Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) -- a control system favored by industries that manage water supplies, oil rigs and power plants.

Iranian experts say the worm may have been created by a state-sponsored organization in the United States or Israel to target specific control software being used in the Iranian industrial sector, including the Bushehr plant -- Iran's first nuclear power plant.
