Iranian cyber hackers were allegedly responsible for breaching an unclassified US Navy computer network as recently as early last week, The Washington Post cited unnamed US officials as saying.

According to the report, the officials said the intruders were working for the government in Tehran or as proxies with the consent of Iranian leaders.

While the American officials denied that the hackers obtained data of high significance, the incident raised new concerns within the Pentagon over advanced Iranian hacking capabilities to access military information, the Post reported.
