Iran: We Stopped a Cyber Attack on Nuclear Facilities

Iran stopped a cyber attack on its nuclear facilities, according to Thursday-evening reports in Iranian media.

The reports say the attack attempts took place after a failure in talks between the Islamic Republic and Western powers regarding its nuclear development program. Iranian Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi said that "Tehran is facing online threats on a daily basis. We knew that the attack would come and we were prepared for it." He blamed Israel, the United States and Britain for being behind the threat.
