FUD! GET YER FUD HERE! : AP Exclusive: Report warns of Iran nuke disaster
VIENNA – The control systems of Iran’s Bushehr nuclear plant have been penetrated by a computer worm unleashed last year, according to a foreign intelligence report that warns of a possible Chernobyl-like disaster once the site becomes fully operational.
Russia’s envoy to NATO, Dmitry Rogozin, also has raised the specter of the 1986 reactor explosion in Ukraine, but suggested last week that the danger had passed.
The report, drawn up by a nation closely monitoring Iran’s nuclear program and obtained by The Associated Press, said such conclusions were premature and based on the “casual assessment” of Russian and Iranian scientists at Bushehr.
With control systems disabled by the virus, the reactor would have the force of a “small nuclear bomb,” it said.
“The minimum possible damage would be a meltdown of the reactor,” it says. “However, external damage and massive environmental destruction could also occur … similar to the Chernobyl disaster.”

Alright enough already with this talk about Stuxnet causing an Iranian Chernobyl! Look, Stuxnet was programmed in a VERY specific way to work its voodoo on the processing of Uranium, NOT on the management of the rods being excited within a reactor! The program attacked the PLC’s for specified Siemens controllers that worked with the centrifuges that spun the Uranium into fissile material.
So, who now is thinking that perhaps this little piece of reporting might be a red herring huh?
Of course the Iranians at this time are so freaked out that they will not patch the systems that have been infected with patches from Siemens because they are too paranoid! God, I love that! Well played USA/UK/Israel for even after Stuxnet has been outed and much research has gone into it, Iran still is totally fucked! Well done! The Iranians have been a paranoid group for a long time, now they are just totally unhinged I suspect with all of the Stuxnet hype and their own brand of internal denial and heads in the sand.
Psssst hey Iran… Jester also infected your LOIC too!
Hey.. Hey now don’t cry…
