Among the ongoing complaints from Americans and Israelis is resort by Iran or China to the crime of cyberwar. The United States assumes it has been the victim of Chinese cyber attacks which threaten the security of our nation. It now turns out that American and Israeli computer experts engaged in cyber war against Iran. Researchers at the security company, Symantec have discovered evidence that an early version of the “Stuxnet” computer virus was used to attack reprocessing plants in Iran. The US and Israel jointly developed the software in order to carry out an almost undetectable attack on Iran’s nuclear bomb making ambitiions.
The only good news is use of this virus persuaded Israel in 2011 not to immediately attack Iran in an effort to hinder their nuclear plans. OH well, it is terrible that China and Iran utilize cyber war against we innocent Americans!
