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.
