June 27, 2022: Khuzestan Steel Hit in Cyber Attack; Production Halts

One of Iran’s major steel companies ended up forced to halt production Monday after being hit by a cyberattack.
The Iranian government did not acknowledge the disruption or blame any specific group for the assault on the state-owned Khuzestan Steel Co., which constitutes the latest example of an attack crippling the country’s services in recent months amid heightened tensions in the region, according to a report from The Associated Press.
A little-known hacking group claimed responsibility for the attack on social media, saying it targeted Iran’s three biggest steel companies because of their links to Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard and volunteer Basij militia.
