Israeli and American hackers’ infiltrated the computers that operate Iran’s nuclear facilities, using the virus Stuxnet.
The virus reportedly caused a fifth of Iran’s nuclear centrifuges to self-destruct by telling them to run themselves into the ground. But, that wasn’t all the hackers did, apparently.
A well-known computer security expert was speaking at the Black Hat security conference this week and offered up a fun fact: the hackers also played AC/DC at the workstations of one of the facilities.
He shared an email from an Iranian scientist who worked at one of the facilities that read:
“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 the American band AC-DC, Thunderstruck. It was all very strange and happened very quickly.”
