Whhistleblower Edward Snowden told a German magazine that Israel and the United States created the Stuxnet computer virus that destroyed nuclear centrifuges in Iran.
Researchers at Symantec Corp. have uncovered a version of the Stuxnet computer virus that was used to attack Iran's nuclear program in November 2007, two years earlier than previously thought.
Iran is spying on Israel via signals intelligence stations in northern Syria and the Golan Heights in cooperation with Hezbollah, according to a new report.
The National Security Agency and a secret Israeli military unit jointly developed a complex computer worm that attacked equipment in Iranian nuclear installations.
A computer virus attacking computers in Iran and the West Bank may have been created with Israeli involvement, a government minister hinted.
Iranian engineers have succeeded in neutralizing and purging the computer virus known as Stuxnet from their country's nuclear machinery, European and U.S. officials and private experts have told Reuters.
A computer virus similar to the Stuxnet virus that attacked Iran's nuclear program has been identified.
The United States was advised by a German think tank to use "covert sabotage" to disrupt Iran's march toward nuclear weapons, a leaked U.S. diplomatic cable reveals.
In the wake of revelations that a computer virus may have set back Iran’s nuclear weapons program, the Western groups and analysts that track the Islamic Republic are saying “More of the same, please.” The benefits of a nonviolent program that inhibits Iranian hegemony by keeping the country's nuclear weapons program at bay are obvious: Better to stop Iran with cyber warfare -- in this case, the Stuxnet computer virus, which reportedly caused Iran’s nuclear centrifuges to spin out of control -- than actual warfare. For those who favor engagement, the cyber attack buys more time to coax the regime in Tehran into compliance. For those who favor the stick, it allows more time to exert pressure on Iran through sanctions and diplomatic isolation.
