Stop Fundamentalism Special Report
According to a state-run website, Fars News, on February 20, Saied Ahangaran, a technical deputy for the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence said that 16,000 computers are still infected by the Stuxnet Worm in Iran. He blamed the international sanctions for this country’s inability to acquire the necessary anti-malware software and tools to combat the computer infection.
The Stuxnet’s attack on the Iranian computer systems, and specifically on computerized control systems used for turning Iranian centrifuges used for enriching uranium in this country’s suspicious nuclear program, was surfaced two years ago. No one has taken responsibility for the development and release of the mal-ware although some reports later on speculate that only the US and Israelis could have developed the Worm due to the advanced technology used in its code.
