    The U.S. government says seven Iranians working for the country's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps are responsible for 187 denial of service attacks aimed at banks across the U.S. between 2011 and 2013.

    It also says one of the individuals gained access to the control system for the Bowman Avenue Dam, a small dam north of New York City, and would have been able to control flow of water through the system had it not been disconnected for repairs.

    The accused worked for two Iranian computer companies, ITSecTeam and Mersad, and were contracted by the Iranian government to conduct the attacks, according to a Department of Justice indictment unsealed on Thursday.
