Monday Apr 25th 2011 by Staff

Iran's commander of civil defense says the Stars virus is now following in the footsteps of the Stuxnet virus at the country's nuclear facilities.

The Guardian: Iran's commander of civil defense, Gholamreza Jalali, says that a new virus has infected the country's nuclear facilities. Called "Stars," this new virus is following in the wake of the Stuxnet worm which damaged Iranian nuclear sites and industrial sites around the world.

"Fortunately, our young experts have been able to discover this virus and the Stars virus is now in the laboratory for more investigations," Jalali said. "The virus is congruous and harmonious with the (computer) system and in the initial phase it does minor damage and might be mistaken for some executive files of government organizations."
