Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta's pointed warning that the United States will strike back against a cyberattack underscores the Obama administration's rising concern that Iran could be the first country to unleash cyberterrorism on America.
The Pentagon plans to resume programs that would pay for military training and equipment in Yemen, nearly a year after halting aid to the key counterterrorism partner because of escalating internal chaos.
Frank Cilluffo, , a former special assistant for homeland security to President George W. Bush, said U.S. authorities have suspected Iran of trying to plot cyberattacks against American targets, including nuclear plants.
He said that Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps appears to now be trying to bring some hacker groups under its control.
