No Response to Cyber Attacks

Iran says it has never reciprocated cyber attacks with counter raids, although it has been a victim of such illegal attacks in the past.
“Iran has never responded to these illegal attacks with reciprocal cyber attacks,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Hossein Jaberi Ansari said on Friday, Press TV reported.
Ansari noted that the Islamic Republic has been the victim of serious cyber attacks, such as the Stuxnet, in recent years.
The spokesman was referring to the 2010 cyber attacks on Iran’s nuclear energy facilities by the Stuxnet computer worm, built jointly by the US and Israel.
He made the statements in response to a recent New York Times report, which cited unnamed US officials as claiming that there has been a surge in cyber attacks by Iran against US State Department officials over the past month.
Ansari also said the lack of an efficient legal system in the international arena to prevent and prohibit cyber attacks is one of the serious shortcomings in countering cyber raids.
