It’s beginning to seem that Iran is the Poland of cyberspace … everyone is p0wning them. The latest buzz around the Natanz nuclear facility is an email received by F-Secure from a scientist at the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI). F-Secure has confirmed the email really did originate from the facility but has not had a chance to validate the claims. Within the note, the scientist claims their network and Siemens systems were shutdown from an attack utilizing nothing more than Metasploit with the added audible insult of playing ACDC’s Thunderstruck from the computer’s speakers each night. If true, then it would seem Iran’s networks are the digital equivalent of the easy-girl at the frat party.
