A while ago, we reported that a cyber attack was launched against Iran’s oil sector. The attack essentially attempted to shut down system at Iran’s oil plants, thus jeopardizing its economy. Lucky for Iran that it was able to identify and thwart the attack just in time. Now, Iran has reported that it was able to trace two IPs which were involved in the attack. And these IPs have been traced back to U.S.


Relationship between Iran and U.S. has been at a low for a long time. Both countries are hostile towards each other with U.S. wanting Iran to get rid of its uranium enrichment ventures whereas Iran responding that these ventures are for power-generation and peaceful purposes only.

It was also recently discovered that U.S. and Israel were behind the notorious Stuxnet virus, which was created to target Iran. So it doesn’t come as a surprise when Iran announces that the cyber attack on it’s oil sector was traced back to U.S.

According to Iranian authorities, ” American IPs were identified in the (cyber) attack against the oil ministry.” Iran is now demanding from U.S. to reveal the identify of those to whom the IPs belong so that Iran can file a lawsuit against them.

The Iranian Deputy Oil Minister is of the opinion, “In general the attack was carried out by virus penetration and was aimed at stealing and destroying data and information. Thanks God, at the time being the computer systems are running with a high level of safety and users are working normally.”

The cyber attack, per se, was failure since it failed to significantly impact the Iranian oil sector. Iranian authorities claim that they have back-up of all their data and that no important data was compromised during the attack.
