Meet Stuxnet’s Evil Twin, Stars

Meet Stuxnet’s Evil Twin, Stars

I wondered last week why the Iranian Defense Ministry was becoming more vocal in its criticism of Siemens for supposedly helping Israel and the West with the Stuxnet virus which has infected Iran’s nuclear program.

This may be the reason, as detailed by the Jerusalem Post:

Iran has been targeted by a second computer virus in a “cyber war” waged by its enemies, its commander of civil defense said on Monday.

Gholamreza Jalali told the semi-official Mehr news agency that the new virus, called “Stars”, was being investigated by experts. Last year, Iran revealed that its computers were attacked by the Stuxnet worm, which attack the Bushehr nuclear reactor….

“The particular characteristics of the Stars virus have been discovered,” Jalali said. “The virus is congruous and harmonious with the [computer] system and in the initial phase it does minor damage and might be mistaken for some executive files of government organizations.”

Best part, the viruses are becoming more pronounceable!

Son of Stuxnet! Hail! Hail! Oh, dem Juice and dem Bush Americans!

The Iranians may have been in the Stuxnet gutter, but now they're looking at the Stars.

I for one welcome our new silicon-based masters!

Stars of David?

Seriously, if, due to sabotage or incompetence, there are mass nuclear casualties in Iran, will "enlightened opinion" blame Israel and ignore the Iranian bomb?
