Iranian politics. Iran wants missiles ; some Iranian missile stories. Iran's international relations. Iran & nuclear issues. A military strike on Iran ? Really ? The Mystery of Stuxnet.

The malware virus, Stuxnet, also struck parts of China, Indonesia, India and Pakistan, but was largely focused in Iran. The malware, Stuxnet, attacks Siemens Windows OS software and is incredibly aggressive. Stuxnet, unlike other forms of malware that extract information, allegedly can take control of an automated system and change it. What makes Stuxnet frightening is the level of sophistication. It is complex, targeted and massive, a completely new virus that has the feel of a cyber warfare weapon.
