DUBAI - Iran can disrupt enemy communication systems as part
of its growing "electronic warfare" capabilities, a senior Iranian commander was
quoted as saying on Tuesday.
Western analysts say Iran has launched
increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks in a growing confrontation with foes,
including the United States, Israel and Gulf Arabs, at a time of rising pressure
on Tehran to curb its nuclear program.
For its part, Iran has suffered
a string of cyber attacks in the past year targeting industrial sites, an oil
export terminal and oil platforms, Iranian officials have said. And a computer
worm disrupted its nuclear activity in 2010.
