Iran says Stuxnet virus infected 16,000 computers

Published: 02.18.12, 16:57 / Israel News

A senior Iranian intelligence official says an estimated 16,000 computers were infected by the Stuxnet virus.

 

The powerful virus targeted Iran's nuclear facilities and other industrial sites in 2010, and Tehran has acknowledged the malicious software affected a limited number of centrifuges - a key component in nuclear fuel production. But Iran has said its scientists discovered and neutralized the malware before it could cause serious damage. (AP)
