FBI Hacked Computers in Iran, Russia, China: Report

FBI Hacked Computers in Iran, Russia, China: Report

Alwaght-The US domestic spying agency, FBI hacked a number of targets in Russia, China, and Iran, a new report has revealed.

According to the Daily Beast, in hacking operation across the world, disguised as child pornography probe, the FBI broke into thousands of computers around the world in 2015.

The FBI’s actions are “essentially opening the door for other countries to unilaterally hack devices located in the US in the law-enforcement context,” Scarlet Kim, legal officer at U.K.-based activist group Privacy International, which has closely followed the FBI’s global hacking operation, told The Daily Beast.

In all, the FBI hacked over 8,000 computers in 120 countries, including across South America, Europe.

Iran has for instance been a victim of cyber-attacks in the past. In 2010 cyber experts said that the Iranian Bushehr nuclear plant was the victim of the computer stuxnet virus.

Experts said that it was purpose built to attack the power plant and was so sophisticated that it could only have been developed by a nation state, most likely the CIA or Mossad.

Stuxnet can disable computers used to control industry and power generation and is the first malware that can be described as a “cyber-weapon.”

In May 2012, Iranian officials said that Iran was targeted again, this time by a data mining virus called Flame, and that it was the most destructive since Stuxnet.
