Four Iranian men accused of yearslong hacking campaign against Treasury and State departments remain at large

Four Iranian men were charged by prosecutors on Tuesday for allegedly orchestrating a hacking campaign that targeted U.S. federal agencies and more than 12 defense contractors handling classified information. 

The men are accused of being affiliated with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as they focused their attacks on the State and Treasury departments, according to an indictment unsealed in the Southern District of New York. It is not clear if the men were successful in their attacks against the Treasury and State departments. The Washington Examiner reached out to both for comment.

Between 2016 and 2021, the four hackers infected more than 200,000 victim devices, many of which contained sensitive or classified defense information,” Damian Williams, U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, said.
