TEHRAN, Iran, Nov.1


Cyber-attacks against Iran are increasing in the past two years, said the secretary of Iran's Supreme Council of Cyberspace (ISCC), Trend reports citing ISNA.

The number and complexity of cyber-attacks in recent years have increased considerably, Abolhassan Firouzabadi noted.

The attacks will continue even if Iran launches the National Information Network, which will connect to the world and can increase the country's domain protection.

The businesses were able to resume their system to first position fast following recent cyber-attacks on railway, ports, and fuel stations.

A cyber-attack recently hit an intranet-based system that lets motorists buy subsidized fuel with government-issued smart cards, causing long queues at stations.
