Increase in cyberattacks from Iran (including against Australia)

Noticed across several websites over the past week or so, there has been a large increase in cyberattacks from IP addresses based in Iran. The attacks are not sophisticated (at the moment), but are essentially being pre-programmed scripts being run to find vulnerabilities in online and then take control of them, likely to either steal information/money or to launch attacks against their own opponents. Keep in mind, whether Iran is actually in control of their own infrastructure in anybody’s’ guess.
