LOL-Worm infects Iran's nuke plants
Well, there's more than one way to stop a nuke plant. They need computers
to operate so somebody infected their computers.
Any guesses on whom?
Someone here or Israel?
However, Our gov't is taking precautions vs this worm.
Experts in Germany discovered the worm in July, and it has since shown up in a number of
attacks — primarily in Iran, Indonesia, India and the U.S
Re: LOL-Worm infects Iran's nuke plants
Here's a guy who thinks Israel launched the virus. He is former security
advisor for Bush.
He said it's impossible for anyone to find out who did it but he thinks its
more likely Israel because it's very risky and the damage it causes to industrial plants
can spread and the bar would have to be really high for US to launch and information
attack like this.
That bar would be high for Israel and it would have to be a nation/state with fiancial
and organizational abilities and Iran has more infections than any country.
Strange that their entire nuke industry is dependent on Windows.
There were 4 windows applications that were vulnerable for this worm that
Microsoft didn't know about. Two have been closed and they're working
on the other two.
It's one of the most sophisticated viruses ever and hides its tracks well.
