Massive Cyberattack On 40 Israeli Firms Believed To Be Iran's "Revenge" For Assassinat

• by Tyler Durden

Tehran has blamed Israel for carrying out the high-tech hit, which appears to have involved one or more 'remote guns' activated via satellite targeting.

But it's widely expected this 'revenge' in whatever form it takes will initially be limited, given that on the one hand the Islamic Republic knows the outgoing Trump administration may be looking for a casus belli that can justify military intervention and escalation against Iranian targets, but on the other the brazen killing of Iranian officials can't just go "unanswered".

On Monday Israeli media is widely reporting that Iran's revenge has likely begun in the form of widescale cyber attacks against Israeli firms that are in some cases central to the financial, technology and logistics sectors.
