American Officials Blame Iran for massive cyber attack on U.S. banks data centers

American officials blamed the Iranian government for a series of coordinated hacking attacks that targeted U.S. banks.

The hackers purposefully targeted bank databases and flooded their systems causing major disruptions and even complete shutdowns of company networks.

No money was stolen and no individual accounts were breached as the hacks were merely meant to disrupt business for the banks, which officials say is a trademark of a government-lead attack.
