TEHRAN, Feb. 8 (Xinhua) -- A senior Iranian telecommunication official said that a "powerful" distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack that targeted Iran's telecom services on Saturday morning has been aborted, Press TV reported.
Sajjad Bonabi, deputy head of Iran's Telecommunication Infrastructure Company, said that the attack had affected several service providers in Iran, including two notable mobile operators.
Bonabi said that the attack caused users to experience connection problems.
He noted that the DDoS attack was dealt with immediately using the Iranian Information Technology Fortress, known as DEJFA.
"Through an intervention by DEJFA and cooperation of colleagues in Infrastructure Company, the communications are now in a normal condition," said Bonabi.
