Iranian forces have combined cyber warfare tactics and maritime war games in a drill for the first time as the Islamic republic’s naval units staged maneuvers in the Strait of Hormuz, media reports said on Monday.
The navy “launched a cyber attack against the computer network of the defensive forces in order to infiltrate the network and hack information or spread virus,” the English-language Iran daily reported, quoting Rear Admiral Amir Rastegari.
Rastegari said the cyber attack was successfully detected and blocked.
