Panetta Cybersecurity

FILE - In this Sept. 27, 2012, file photo, U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, speaks at a news conference with U.S. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey, not pictured, at the Pentagon, in Washington. A former U.S. government official says American authorities firmly believe that Iranian hackers, likely supported by the Tehran government, were responsible for recent cyberattacks against oil and gas companies in the Persian Gulf and that they appeared to be in retaliation for the latest round of U.S. sanctions against the country. The former official spoke to The Associated Press shortly before Panetta, in a speech to business leaders in New York City Thursday night, Oct. 11, 2012, became the first U.S. official to publicly acknowledge the computer-based assaults.
