NYT: US Military Wary of Cyberattacks from Iran after Nuclear Deal Exit
Local Editor

US military experts in Pentagon's cyber warfare unit have been closely monitoring the internet traffic out of Iran amid fears that the country will stage cyberattacks amid the US President Donald Trump's announcement of withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, The New York Times reported.

US military monitoring

According to the security researchers cited by the newspaper, since the Iran nuclear deal was signed in 2015 the number of cyberattacks has significantly reduced as the hackers shifted their focus from the United States to Iranian neighbors in the Middle East.

Now, right after the US president's decision, a security firm CrowdStrike reportedly notified its customers that there was a "notable" shift in Iranian cyber activity with Iranian hackers sending emails with malware to diplomats working in the foreign affairs offices of US allies and employees at telecommunications companies in an attempt to infiltrate their computer systems.

The newspaper added that the security researchers had discovered that Iranian hackers had also been probing the internet addresses belonging to US military installations in Europe over the last two months.

Trump announced on Tuesday that the United States would withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and vowed to re-impose the highest level of economic sanctions against Iran. The move has been strongly criticized by other P5+1 members, namely Moscow, London, Beijing, Paris, Berlin and Brussels, who have confirmed their commitment to the deal. Tehran, in its turn, stated that it would continue to adhere to the nuclear deal and emphasized that none of its provisions could be re-negotiated.

On July 14, 2015, the European Union and the P5+1 group of countries - China, Germany, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and the US - signed the JCPOA with Iran. The agreement stipulated a gradual lifting of anti-Iranian economic sanctions in exchange for Tehran curbing its nuclear program and allowing inspections to ensure that the nature of the program is peaceful.
