DEBKAfile reports that thousands of Iranian industrial computers have been disabled by a virus.
Mahmoud Alyaee, secretary-general of Iran’s industrial computer servers – which includes those involved in nuclear facilities – states that 30,000 computers have been infected and disabled.
Since August, American and UN nuclear watchdog sources have been reporting a slowdown in Iran’s enrichment processing due to technical problems which have knocked out a large number of centrifuges and which its nuclear technicians have been unable to repair. It is estimated that at Natanz alone, 3,000 centrifuges have been idled.
Alyaee states that the virus began attacking their computers two months ago.
Not only has it taken control of automatic industrial systems, but has raided them for classified information and transferred the date abroad.
In that case, perhaps we could use the acquired intel to build a few new nuclear plants ourselves. Cheap, clean, and putting Americans back to work.
