Rock, Rock, Rock Iran

I don’t want to find out if this story isn’t true. Because if it is true, whoever thought of it deserves a medal for sheer awesomeness:

A computer malware has allegedly attacked computer systems in Iran forcing them to play AC/DC’s Thunderstruck at full volume in the middle of the night, according to a computer security researcher.

Mikko Hypponen, lead researcher at the Finnish computer security firm F-Secure, reported in his blog that a scientist working at the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran (AEOI) sent him an e-mail about his systems getting hit by a cyber-attack.

Lee would have loved this. You can read a quick post he did back in the old days about Marines blasting “Hell’s Bells” into militant-controlled areas, which includes a great Lee line.

    well, they have been “struck” , and im willing to bet that Irans counter cyberwar geeks are going nuts looking for what else this malware might have done.
    If I was planning a cyber attack on iran i would certainly subject them to a deluge of this, without any underlying effect. clog the system, over work their people, and it will be easier to slip in something truly malicious.
    I might be funnier if this video was included… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Evu8L2pF7w&feature=related
