Iranian Intel official says 'Stuxnet virus infected 16,000 computers'
Tehran, Feb 19 : A senior Iranian intelligence official has claimed that an estimated 16,000 computers were infected by the Stuxnet virus, which targeted the country's nuclear facilities and other industrial sites in 2010.
The Iranian state media quoted a deputy intelligence chief identified only as Ahangaran, as saying thousands of computers were infected by Stuxnet, but he did not specify whether worldwide or just in Iran.
He also said that Iran is facing difficulties in obtaining anti-malware software because of international sanctions, forcing the country to use its own experts to design the software, Fox News reports.
Just a temporary slowdown. Great, innovative slowdown, but the real problem remains. And some portion of it will remain until Ezekiel 38 and 39 are fulfilled.
IMHO, we may only be seeing things prior to that and there may be a war (or more) before that. Because in those, Iran attacks Israel first (along with several allies of Iran joining them in the attack).
No way to tell how this is all going to unfold, exactly. But we certainly see basis of the alliance. But Libya has to be part of the equation, too. Certainly more things are going to develop there, as well. Libya must eventually turn more anti-Israel (Ghaddafi was pretty far down the road with that one, but more to come ... duh).
