Cyberattack Forces Shutdown Of Iran Steel Company

One of Iran’s largest steel producers announced on Monday that it had to stop production as a result of a cyberattack, reportedly one of the most significant such attacks on the nation’s critical industrial sector in recent memory.

In a statement, the publicly traded Khuzestan Steel Company stated that after “cyberattacks,” specialists had determined the company was unable to continue operations “due to technical problems and will be closed until further notice.” The website for the business looked to be down.

According to a local news station, Jamaran, the steel mill was not structurally harmed by the attack because it happened to be closed at the time owing to an electrical outage.

The attack, which is only the most recent instance of an assault on the nation’s services in recent weeks, was not attributed by the corporation to any one group. Iran has already charged the US and Israel with carrying out cyberattacks that were directed against and severely damaged the nation’s infrastructure.

Along with two other significant state-owned companies, Khuzestan Steel Company, situated in Ahvaz in southwestern Iran, holds the production monopoly for steel in Iran. The business was established prior to Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution, and for many years later, some production lines were provided by German, Italian, and Japanese firms.
