Why Did The U.S. Cyberattack Iran’s Propaganda Operations? | Forbes

Anonymous sources reported that the U.S. conducted a cyberattack against Iran as a follow-up the Iran’s alleged attack against Saudi oil compounds. These cyberattacks were supposed to interfere with Tehran’s capability to circulate propaganda. Officials are becoming uneasy in relations to possible cyberattacks in the upcoming election. Other countries such as China and Iran could be learning from the Russian attempts to influence U.S. citizens. This could lead to other dangers including account hacking, manipulation, and the spread of false information.
