    The government of Iran claims it again with a computer virus is attacked. It is unknown what damage the virus, called "Stars", would do exactly. The virus was earlier Stuxnet Iranian power plants on.

    Iran Iran claims to be attacked by a new virus called "Stars", reports Reuters. Whether the virus would be specifically designed to attack Iran is unclear. According to the Iranian chief of police, Gholamreza Jalali, the virus is currently being investigated.

    Jalali told nothing about any damage that the virus has wrought. The commander just wanted to say that the virus 'first' little damage and that it can be mistaken for executable files of government agencies.

    If the virus is designed to attack Iran, would not be the first time: the virus Stuxnet founded last year in damage to Iran's nuclear power plants. It was written for frequency converters of uranium centrifuges to sabotage. It is still unclear who is behind the virus.

    Boohoo, the Iranian government deserves it after all the atrocities they have put their people through. You can't say that their government has had it coming, because people have been after information on Iran's nuclear development programs for the last few years and any information that is discovered about the development of nuclear weapons would cause severe backlash from the international community, possibly even war.

    Sure, Iran will be getting its fair share of punishment, but what about the innocents that this will affect? (Not every Iranian is a Taliban member.)

    Misleading title. I was hoping for some biological weapon style destruction, but no such luck.

    Iran deserves it, they need to stop their nuclear program and get rid of the corrupt president and religious clerics who actually run the country.

    I will give you every right to say so as soon as the U.S dismantles the last nuclear warhead they have at their disposal.

    Until then, please hush.

    Your big country uses scare tactics and in extreme cases invades countries that want to arm themselves with nukes, pointing out that it's very naughty to do so while at the same time they have *consciderable* ammounts of nukes themselves.

    Moral from the story is very simple, whoever starts a nuclear program first gets to hold the rockets. That *shouldn't* be the case.

    Moral number two is what follows: "For some bizzare reason, the U.S government feels like they're the world's number one police officer, but they fail to see crime in their own neighbourhood".

    I bet you a million bucks that if N.A.T.O made a search for weapons of mass destruction in the U.S, they'd find more of them there than they did in Iraq, Afganistan and many other coutries they invaded over the years.
