The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the operation took place in late September and took aim at Tehran’s ability to spread “propaganda.”

One of the officials said the strike affected physical hardware, but did not provide further details.

It highlights how President Donald Trump’s administration has been trying to counter what it sees as Iranian aggression without spiraling into a broader conflict.

The strike appears more limited than other such operations against Iran this year after the downing of an American drone in June and an alleged attack by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards on oil tankers in the Gulf in May.

This is not the first time we have heard of the US attacking Iran with cyber strikes. I think it is a better option then sending troops or missile strikes.

I would say chances are the US is actively hacking Syria and Turkey at this time also. I wouldn't be surprised if the US is hacking all their enemies all the time these days.

I know this was speculated in general when this all went down. When you mention the US hacking everyone and all of the enemies hacking us at the same time, you're really not far off the mark. Read up on APT groups, pretty interesting stuff. FireEye APT group listing
