More news in Iran virus attack

This virus attack shoudl be treated as an act of war because not only
did this virus originate in israel but it was designed to target
computers with programing bt Siemens, a Grerman defense contractor which
israel heavily relies on and would know how to insulate against attacks.
Iran's defense ministry must look at which companies it deals with that
also deals with israel to prevent further such attacks and should take
whatever steps is necessary to stop these zionists.

Miskin( Iranian Intelligence Minister Heider
Moslehi said Sunday that his country is under cyber attack, and blamed
the United States and Israel. Iranian officials initially admitted that
their country had been hit by the Stuxnet computer worm, but insisted
that the damage was minimal.

Iran has been forced to push back the opening of the nuclear plant in
Bushehr. Senior Information and Technology official Hamid Alipour
admitted that while Iranian officials had hoped to clean up the worm's
infiltration in under two months, that hope had been proven unrealistic.
“The worm is not stable, and since we started the cleanup process,
three new versions have been spreading,” he said.

Stuxnet hit Iran much harder than any other nation, affecting an
estimated 62,000 systems. A total of 100,000 computers are thought to
have been hit with the worm worldwide. The worm was designed to target
software created by the German company Siemens; Iran relies heavily on
Siemens systems.

Israel has been among the top suspects in the creation of the Stuxnet
worm, due both to Israeli opposition to Iran's unsupervised nuclear
program, and to the complexity of the attacker, which experts say could
only have been created by a team with significant funding, resources and

Stuxnet is uniquely dangerous in that it can not only cause damage to a
system, but can take control of facilities, producing physical,
real-world results to an attack. The worm also studies its targets,
determining which type of system it has entered before deciding whether
or not to attack. To date, it has entered primarily systems that control
critical infrastructure.

Even the worm's discovery has not stopped its destructive power.
Attackers remain able to communicate with infected machines using
peer-to-peer networking.

A detailed analysis released by security firm Symantec revealed two
clues that, according to, may indicate Israeli involvement in
the attack – or may indicate that another country is trying to
implicate Israel in the attack. Two file directory names, “myrtus”
and “guava,” could be an allusion to the biblical Queen Esther, who
intervened to save the Jewish people from destruction at the hands of a
Persian king. Persia is now known as Iran.

Esther was also known as Hadassah, a name which means “myrtle” in
Hebrew. Guavas are in the myrtle family of fruit.

A second possible hint at Israeli involvement is the halt marker
19790509, a possible reference to the date May 9, 1979, when Iran
executed Persian Jew Habib Elghanian, prompting the mass exodus of
Iranian Jews from the newly Islamic state.

The Symantec analysis was released in an attempt to get information on
what, exactly, Stuxnet is targeting.

Queen Esther seems to be a ubiquitous symbol, imagined or otherwise. Two
years ago, an Egyptian cleric called for a boycott of Starbucks' Coffee
after he claimed to have identified the image of Queen Esther in its
