Web attacks on big US banks originated in Iran, unconfirmed reports say
Two reports say a series of denial-of-service attacks were launched from Iran

Iranians have mounted a series of denial-of-service attacks over the past year that target major US banks and other companies, according to two published reports that cite unnamed US officials.

The reports, published on Friday by The Washington Post and Reuters, came a few days after websites for both Bank of America and JPMorgan Chase experienced unexplained service disruptions. US Senator Joseph Lieberman, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, said on Friday that he believes a unit of Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps is behind the disruptions, but provided no evidence to support the claim. Neither bank has confirmed that the disruptions were the result of attacks, so it's possible equipment failure or other internal causes are responsible.

According to the Washington Post, US officials suspect that Iran was behind similar denial-of-service attacks, which bring websites to a crawl or make them completely unavailable by overwhelming them with garbage traffic. One such attack was carried out in August, and was aimed at disrupting the websites of oil companies in the Middle East "by routing their efforts through major US telecommunications companies, including AT&T and Level 3," the publication reported, citing US intelligence and industry officials. It was the largest attempted DoS attack against AT&T "by an order of magnitude," an industry official said. The sources spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak to the press.

The United States says it has no evidence that Iranian leaders have made a final decision to build a bomb. It is harder to make the case that Iran's leadership is rational, however.

It seems they just want to be left alone. They haven't attacked or invaded any other country. Seems pretty rational.

They did it through proxy servers because surely the banks are not smart enough to sense or have enough sense to know where these attacks "might" or "could" come from ?

Peace is not an option when dealing with armed psychopaths.
