Iran ups cyber attacks on Israeli computers: Netanyahu

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Iran and its Palestinian and Lebanese allies on Sunday of carrying out “non-stop” cyber attacks on major computer systems in his country.

He gave no details on the number of attacks but said “vital national systems” had been targeted. Water, power and banking sites were also under threat, he added.

“In the past few months, we have identified a significant increase in the scope of cyber attacks on Israel by Iran. These attacks are carried out directly by Iran and through its proxies, Hamas and Hezbollah,” he told a conference on cyber warfare in his country’s commercial hub Tel Aviv.
