October 21, 2018

TEHRAN – Head of the Civil Defense Organization on Sunday warned of possible computer virus attacks by the enemy to harm the country’s infrastructure.

“With such tools, the enemy can remotely take control of Iran’s facilities and commit damaging acts,” said Brigadier General Gholam Reza Jalali, Tasnim reported.

He also said necessary arrangements have been made to counter the U.S. hostile strategies and its potential move to block Iran’s access to the Internet.

The Americans have the required tools to cut off Iran’s access to the Internet, but have not made any announcement for such a move, the general stated.
