Enter Unit 8200: Israel arms for cyberwar – UPI.com

TEL AVIV, Israel, May 11 (UPI) — Amid mounting tensions in the Middle East, Israel’s outgoing internal security chief, Yuval Diskin, says the Jewish state has been the target of attempted cyberattacks on key state infrastructure.

The attacker’s identity was not disclosed, if indeed it is known. But the apparently unsuccessful attempts may have been retaliation by Iran for recent cyberattacks, blamed on Israel, on Tehran’s contentious nuclear program.
