Iran has been blamed for cyberattacks targeting critical infrastructure in the United Kingdom on December 23, 2018. The Post Office, local government networks, companies, and banks have been compromised in an “ongoing” campaign to steal the personal details of thousands of individuals, including Members of Parliament. Cyber security experts have concluded that a group connected to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) is responsible for the attack. A European intelligence chief has labeled Iran as the third major cyber threat to the West after Russia and China.
