Iran-based attacks more serious than public realizes

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.
