Iran Claims US Easy Prey to Hacker Attacks

The US is among the most vulnerable states around to cyberattacks, the head of Iran’s civil defense organization said on Saturday.

“The US is the most vulnerable country in defending its cyber space and structures,” Brigadier General Gholam Reza Jalali told reporters during a news conference in Tehran, FARS news agency reported.

His remarks came after reports said that hackers, who had attacked a US government database, could now be in possession of vast amounts of personal data on every federal employee.

Last week, the US Office of Personnel Management admitted a major cyberattack took place in December 2014, but it was only detected in April. The hack compromised the personal information of some four million federal employees, the agency originally said. US officials quickly blamed China for the attack but Beijing dismissed the claims as “irresponsible” and “counterproductive”.
