Iran Denies It Has Suffered Attacks On Its Oil Production

Iran has denied  that its oil infrastructure had been successfully attacked by a cyber operation, after reports of disruptions to the sector online. After reports last week of a cyber attack on some petrochemical and other companies in Iran, a state body in charge of cyber security denied there had been a "successful" attack.

"Contrary to Western media claims, investigations done today show no successful cyber-attack was made on the country's oil installations and other crucial infrastructure....based on our observations ... there has not been a successful cyber-attack on oil facilities and other critical infrastructure," said an official statement. The statement did not specify which reports it was addressing.

NetBlocks, an organisation that tracks internet outages, tweeted that "network data show intermittent disruptions to internet connectivity in #Iran." It said the cause was unclear and impact limited, affecting "online industrial and government platforms" and specific providers.

Iran's Telecommunications Minister Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi has acknowledged in the past that Tehran has "been facing cyber terrorism, such as Stuxnet." The Stuxnet virus, discovered in 2010, is believed to have been engineered by Israel and the US to damage nuclear facilities in Iran. Iran at the time accused the US and Israel of using the virus to target its centrifuges used for uranium enrichment.
