AC/DC virus rocks Iran’s Nuke reactors


Iran’s nuclear facilities were reportedly struck by a computer worm that plays AC/DC’s hit song ‘Thunderstruck’ repeatedly and at maximum volume.


There has been no confirmation of the attack from Tehran, but the evidence stems from a series of e-mails purporting to be from Iran’s  Atomic Energy Organisation.


An unnamed Iranian scientist e-mailed chief research officer for Finnish Internet security firm F-Secure, Mikko Hypponen, saying that the facilities at Natanz and Fordo, near Qom, were hit by a worm, the Daily Mail reported.


The malware not only disabled the automated network at both sites, but also had an interesting side effect of blaring out the AC/DC music track.


According to the daily, another e-mail made reference to AC/DC’s Thunderstruck being played ‘on several workstations in the middle of the night with the volume maxed out.’
