Fox News had an interesting article on Friday about the stuxnet malware, and how it was ingeniously constructed to disrupt the Iranian nuclear program:

“In other words the worm was designed to allow the Iranian program to continue but never succeed, and never to know why.”

But that is not what this post is about.

In other news, two senior Iranian nuclear scientists were just assassinated in Iran.

But that is not what this post is about.

This post is about the possible connection between the two events, as reported by DEBKAfile:

Prof. Majid Shahriari, who died when his car was attacked in North Tehran Monday, Nov. 29, headed the team Iran established for combating the Stuxnet virus rampaging through its nuclear and military networks. His wife was injured. The scientist’s death deals a major blow to Iran’s herculean efforts to purge its nuclear and military control systems of the destructive worm since it went on the offensive six months ago.
