It seems the computers in Iran's nuclear power plants have been attacked by a computer worm, Stuxnet, which is believed to be a state-backed sabotage attack, aimed at stopping Iran's nuclear ambitions. The worm has already caused 'technical problems' that has already slowed down Iran's nuclear program. Iran denies this, apart from admitting that 45,000 (read ten times that figure) computers in Iran have so far been infected.
Analysts say that the sophistication and elegance of this attack points mainly at Israel. And how wonderful is that if it's true (Israel will never admit or deny), using a specially developed computer virus to shut down or slow down an enemy state's nuclear program. Hopefully the Iranians realise that Israel has a very long reach. And no loss of human life either. Don't you just love it!
