Hackers linked to Iran have broken into multiple organizations in the United States, the FBI, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Cyber ​​Security and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and Israel's National Cyber ​​Directorate said.

They did not say how many organizations were hacked, and the institutions attacked included those in "energy production, food, beverages and healthcare".

Cyber ​​security experts say that while there is no evidence of Iranian involvement in the October 7 Hamas attack on Israel that sparked the Gaza war, they expected Iranian and pro-Palestinian hackers to carry out cyber attacks on Israel and its allies.

It is not known whether the hackers tried to penetrate deeper into the cyber networks of various organizations.

The agencies' report states that the access they gained allowed for "deeper cyber-physical effects on processes and equipment."

Experts say many water utilities have not paid enough attention to cyber security.

Security agencies claim that the hackers, who call themselves the Cyber ​​Av3ngers, are linked to Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, which the United States designated a foreign terrorist organization in 2019.
