    Texas Reports Surge in Cyber Interference (10:18 p.m.)

    Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced on Tuesday that reconnaissance of the state’s computer networks by foreign operatives has surged in the last two days to 10,000 attempts per minute.

    While it’s not uncommon for adversaries to attempt attacks on an hourly basis, Texas has detected increased activity from “outside the United States, including Iran,” according to the Texas Department of Information Resources.

    There have been warnings of Iranian cyber attacks in the wake of the killing of an Iranian general in a U.S. airstrike last week.

    The Texas agency emphasized that it has successfully blocked every attempt to gain entry, but declined to explain exactly where hackers have tried to gain access.

    The agency “constantly detects and blocks malicious traffic on the networks of the multiple state agencies it services,” according to a statement issued by the state after Abbott met with his domestic terrorism taskforce. “As global threats to cybersecurity increase, we urge Texans to be vigilant and use heightened awareness as they conduct Internet activity.”

    The Texas statement came three days after the website for the U.S. Federal Depository Library Program was hacked and defaced with “pro-Iranian, anti-U.S. messaging.” The South Alabama Veterans Council was similarly targeted.

    It should be expected that they try this route as well. It should come as no surprise, but you can look at it as an attempt to interfere in our elections as well. In many ways I do believe the initial ramp of tension was a targeted move to effect the election upcoming as well.
