UK Media Report on 'Iranian Secret Cyber Files' Casts More Doubt Than Confidence, Experts Say

On Monday, Sky News published a story suggesting that Iran has been conducting clandestine research on the possible impact of cyber attacks on civilian infrastructure, including petrol stations, cargo ships and programmable logic controllers, citing what the media outlet claimed were "classified" documents compiled by Iranian intelligence.

The authenticity of the alleged "Iranian secret cyber files" cited by Sky News, on how cyber attacks could be used against civilian infrastructure objects, is debatable, experts said, shortly after the UK media outlet published so-called 'classified documents' said to have been acquired from Iranian intelligence.

According to the Monday Sky News report, Iran has been conducting "secret research" into how cyber attacks could affect cargo ships and petrol stations, along with other civilian infrastructure entities. The outlet, citing an unnamed source, attributes the alleged intelligence to the Islamic republic's clandestine Intelligence Team 13 - a cell described as "a sub-group within the IRGC Shahid Kaveh unit", which is reportedly under an individual named Hamid Reza Lashgarian.
