Iran Conducts 'Major Cyber Assault' on Key Infrastructure

UK National Cyber Security Centre (NSCS) revealed that Iranian hackers had launched a series of coordinated attacks against key UK infrastructure since December 2018. The hackers targeted the national post office, banks, and local government networks, stealing the personal data of thousands of people, including a small number of politicians. The stolen data can be used for impersonation attacks against the government and may lead to compromises with deeper consequences. NSCS is currently working with affected organisations to implement mitigation measures for containing the attacks.
