The computer networks of Texas state agencies have been hit with roughly 10,000 “probes” from Iranian hackers in the past two days, Texas officials said Tuesday. The announcement comes after a federal government website was hacked over the weekend following the Trump-ordered killing of Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassim Soleimani. “It’s very important that everybody be particularly vigilant right now about what may happen out of Iran,” Gov. Greg Abbott said. Department of Information Resources executive director Amanda Crawford said she had no indication that any of the attempted cyber attacks were successful.
