In this edition of ‘America flexing its nuts just to fuck with foreigners,’ we use a harmless cyber attack. Harmless sure, but the message came through loud and clear. Actually, it came through extremely loud and in the middle of the night, as some kind of badass American computer virus prompted several computers in the Iranian nuclear lab to burst out in AC/DC’s hit “Thunderstruck.”
Iran’s nuclear facilities have suffered a cyber attack that shut down computers and played music from the rock band AC/DC, the F-Secure Security Labs website said.
A new worm has targeted Iran’s nuclear program, shutting down the “automation network” at the Natanz and Fordo facilities, the Internet security site reported, citing an e- mail it said was sent by a scientist inside Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization.
The virus also prompted several of the computers on site to play the song “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC at full volume in the middle of the night, according to the e-mail, part of which is published in English on the website.
Even our American computer nerds like to haze foreign enemies. And this hazing session was one huge “If we can attack your highly-protected computers, imagine what else we can do” mind fuck, a mind fuck that leaves the Iranians wondering how else America can invade their shit. Dominance asserted.
Here you go. Turn it up:
