Nuclear Computer Virus Plays AC/DC At Full Volume
A computer virus that targeted nuclear computers in Iran has had the unusual side-effect of playing AC/DC tracks at full volume. A letter from Finnish computer security firm F-Secure says they received a series of emails from nuclear research facilities there (via Gawker), including one which said this: "I am writing you to inform you that our nuclear program has once again been compromised and attacked by a new worm with exploits which have shut down our automation network. "There was also some music playing randomly on several of the workstations during the middle of the night with the volume maxed out. I believe it was playing 'Thunderstruck' by AC/DC." Viruses targeting Iranian nuclear facilities are not new. The US government recently worked in conjunction with Israel to develop software that would spy on Iranian computer networks in secret, but were somewhat humiliated when security experts uncovered the source of the virus. In other news, Classic Rock cites an Australian tour operator who found that great white sharks seem to like the band. The operator claims the sharks would swim closer to the boat when their music was playing. If you could target computers with an AC/DC song, which would it be? Let us know in the comments.
