Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 23 /Trend S.Isayev, T. Jafarov/
It is common today that some countries using fake IPs for cyber attacks, and this occurs in case with Iran, Deputy Communications and Technology Minister Ali Hakim-Javadi said, ISNA reported.
Hakim-Javadi underscored that other countries are using Iran's IPs for the cyber attacks.
Regarding the claim that Iran uses cyber attacks on the U.S. and Israel, Hakim-Javadi dismissed such options.
"I am making it clear, that Iran is not using cyber attacks against other country. This is an inappropriate way of using cyberspace," he said, adding that Iran has no interest of attacking other countries.
In mid October, the Wall Street Journal reported that the U.S. believes Iranian government is behind a series of recent cyber attacks upon US financial institutions.
The hackers were apprently part of a group of less than 100 computer security specialists from Iranian universities and network security firms, according to an unnamed US government official, DPA reported earlier.
The cyber attacks, which disabled the US banks' websites, contained "signatures" that led the U.S. to suspect Iranian government culpability.
While details remained classified, the U.S. said the Iranian hackers would not have the resources to carry out the attacks without the support and technical expertise of the Iranian government.
