TEHRAN, Aug. 14 (UPI) — Iran aims to bring the issue of cyberattacksm allegedly conducted by foreign governmentsm to the attention of international arbiters, an official said.

Majid Jafarzadeh, head of a presidential center for international legal affairs in Tehran, said the Iranian government was in talks with domestic and foreign legal experts to discuss a lawsuit against those responsible for launching attacks on computer networks in Iran.

“The issue will be pursued as far as possible at the level of judicial bodies and in the framework of other cases which will be raised in the future,” he told the semiofficial Fars News Agency.

F-Secure Security Labs, a company monitoring spyware, reported in July that computer systems at Iran’s Natanz and Fordo nuclear facilities were compromised by a computer worm that programmed computers to play a song by rock band AC/DC.

The Stuxnet computer virus disrupted more than 10 percent of Iranian nuclear centrifuges and the Iranian National Computer Emergency Response Team recently distributed software to protect against a type of malware dubbed Flame.

The U.S. and Israeli governments have been suspected in playing a role in some of the attacks.
