The cyber attacks that U.S. banks have been falling prey to are more serious than the general public realizes, according to Insurance Journal
The Cyber Fighters of Izz ad-din Al Qassam have claimed credit for the distributed denial-of-service attacks that denied service to the websites of more than a dozen U.S. banks for hours and, for some, days at a time, Insurance Journal reported.
These attacks are sponsored by Iran, and indicate the country’s growing capability in cyberspace.
