Hackers aligned with the Iranian government reportedly launched a major campaign of cyberattacks ahead of renewed U.S. sanctions against the country. The cybersecurity firm FireEye warned this week that a group of hackers it calls APT-33 was targeting Middle Eastern energy firms and others. FireEye said the recent attacks only involved hackers stealing information from infected computers. But cybercriminals previously used a similar type of malware to destroy thousands of terminals in Saudi Arabia.
