Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri believes the cyber abilities of the United States and Israel are enlarged.

“According to our studies, United States and Israel cannot easily operate cyber attacks on other countries especially Iran. They know Iranians have good talent in cyber field and we will react in a right time.” General Masoud Jazayeri said.

Jazayeri also claimed none of the cyber attacks have suffered Iran’s military bases and added: “Because of the recent wave of cyber attacks, Iran is going to prosecute United States and Israel over their recent activities against Iran.”

Recently the United States and Israel jointly developed a sophisticated computer virus nicknamed Flame that collected intelligence in preparation for cyber-sabotage aimed at slowing Iran’s ability to develop a nuclear weapon.

Flame was identified in May 2012 by MAHER Center of Iranian National CERT, Kaspersky Lab and CrySyS Lab (Laboratory of Cryptography and System Security) of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics when Kaspersky Lab was asked by the United Nations International Telecommunication Union to investigate reports of a virus affecting Iranian Oil Ministry computers.
