Computers In Iran Blasting AC/DC Due To Computer Virus

ACDC.com

It seems that Iranian Nuclear Scientists are being plagued by the ‘thunder from down under’. A computer virus is crippling their computers, while blasting AC/DC. Is this a case of dirty deeds done dirt cheap (sorry, I had to)?

Mikko Hypponen is a researcher at Finnish firm F-Secure. If you’re a computer nerd you remember their early anti-virus software that ran in DOS. Hypponen reported receiving a number of emails from Iran, detailing a computer virus that was crippling machines at the country’s nuclear research facilities.

Apparently the signature mark of the virus, was the fact that some workstations began blasting AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck” after they were infected.

Computers at the Nuclear Research facilities in Iran have been targeted by a number of virus attacks. No one has claimed responsibilities for the attacks.

Something tells me Robert Downey Jr. is confusing himself for Tony Stark again.
