Investigators attributed cyberattack on the British parliament to Iran

A secret intelligence assessment claims that the cyberattack on the British parliament on June 2017 was carried out by Iran, The Times reports. Initially thought to be undertaken by the Russian Federation, the sustained cyberattack targeted 9000 email accounts looking for weak passwords, and succeeded to compromise 90 accounts. While The House of Commons would not comment on security issues, a spokesman for the National Cyber Security Centre said that “it would be inappropriate to comment further while enquiries are ongoing.”
