Submission + - Iran v USA - the world's first cyberwar has started ( 1

rifles only writes: Since September 2012, the US financial sector has suffered some of the largest sustained DDoS attacks in history, downing customer-facing portals like ninepins. Officials have been reluctant to turn up the heat by admitting where they're coming from, but now minds are changing. People are calling this what it is — a cyberwar with Iran.

The US spooks fired Stuxnet, Duqu and Flame, now the Iranians are firing back with the best, cheapest weapon to hand — sophisticated, real-time DDoS. It sometimes hides behind hacktivism but 75gbps peak DDoS on a daily basis is not amateur DDoS.

Where is Cyberwar 1 going?
