A couple of things trouble me about this story and ones like it telling us that some kid genius somewhere hacked into a Pentagon or other sensitive Government computer.
I can sort of understand the Iranians being naive but only sort of because when this nation was known as Persia they made great contributions to the world in areas like Philosophy, Medicine, Science, even Poetry.
It seems that the Islamic revolution has reverted them back to before recorded History when it comes to intellect.
We on the other hand have no such excuse since our Nation leads the world in almost every human endeavor.
So I have to ask how brilliant is it to have sensitive computers on the same internet as Yahoo, Google, and Facebook and crazy old Aunt Fanny and her vibrating monkey?
This makes no sense what so ever. It's like the enemy being able to download images in real time from Predator Drones in a combat zone.
It's crazy times 100.
The same goes for our infrastructure there is no reason to have to read the dials our make adjustments from outside the plant or what ever's location.
Next there is this: The project manager at the Bushehr nuclear plant, Mahmoud Jafari, said a team is trying to remove the malware from several affected computers, though it "has not caused any damage to major systems of the plant,"
Based on my political knowledge I equate this statement of Saddam Husein's spokesman Tariq Aziz as American Troops were coming down the street.: "American Troops? What American Troops? iI see no evidence of this."
It like being knocked down in a fight, losing a tooth and saying it didn't hurt.
And finally is it possible that because of the repressive society in Iran than one of the Boys at the power plant was surfing the web for Muslim porn pictures of Islamic women dressed in scantily made Burkas. And inadvertently pick up a Trojan Horse virus.
Or maybe he was just looking for "Trojans" online and mistakenly found the horse instead. Could happen to anyone. :rofl
