CNN: US to Blame Iran for 2013 Hack on NY Dam

CyberStockThe U.S. government plans to blame Iran in a public statement for a 2013 cyber breach on a dam based 30 miles north of New York City, CNN reported Thursday.

Evan Perez and Shimon Prokupecz write the Justice Department will issue an indictment within the week against hackers investigators believe are working for Iran’s government.

CNN reports the hackers were able to access some office systems but not the dam’s operational data, according to the report.

Hackers out of Iran attempted to attack U.S. financial institutions around the same time as the breach on the Bowman Avenue Dam in Rye Brook, N.Y., according to the report.

The dam attack involved the use of commercial-off-the-shelf software, CNN said.
