Iran Hit with Cyber Attack- Heavy Metal Music
By Micah Halpern

Thursday July 26, 2012

I've Been Thinking:

Cyber war is serious stuff. But there are some lighter moments.
Yesterday the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran was hit by a virus. The virus shut the agency down. All Siemens products were affected.

The virus plays the 1991Heavy Metal song Thunderstruck by AC/DC.
As far as we can tell from reports, from people who have been called in to help Iran who have been quoted and from atomic energy colleagues, the music virus malware has done nothing more than offend the ears.

Heavy metal at its best with a lot of screeching and a lot of pounding.

This might just be a new form of torture for Iranian scientists.
Never underestimate the power of a good sense of humor.
