Thunderstruck: Iran's nuclear facilities given AC/DC treatment by computer worm
http://www.smh.com.au/it-pro/securi...reatment-by-computer-worm-20120725-22pf2.html

"You've beeen THUNDERRR STRUUUUUUCK...."

How badass is that?
Two of Iran's nuclear plants have been struck by a computer worm - Thunderstruck to be precise.
That's if you believe an email allegedly sent by an Iranian nuclear scientist to the chief research officer of Finland IT security firm F-Secure, Mikko Hypponen, this week and published on F-Secure's blog.
Hypponen said he couldn't confirm whether the details of the email were true, but could confirm it was sent from someone within the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran. It describes how a computer worm allegedly compromised two Iranian nuclear plants by shutting them down and making workstations play Australian rock band AC/DC's Thunderstruck song late at night, at full volume.
