According to NetBlocks, Iran has lost 25% of its internet access as a result of cyber attacks on the country's infrastructure. After the precautions taken, internet access returned to normal after 7 hours.
Mapping internet freedom in real time, NetBlocks confirmed that there was a major glitch in Iran's telecommunications network on the morning of February 8 . NetBlocks, which detected flaws and critical cyber attacks in real time, said that the internet usage in the country has dropped up to 75% in a post on Twitter .
It is said that the main reason for losing about 25% of the internet in the country is due to the fact that Iranian authorities activated the "Digital Fortress" cyber defense mechanism known as DZHAFA . The NetBlocks report is also said to have implemented DEZHFA activation to "repel a cyber attack on the country's infrastructure" .
