In one of the cooler news items in recent memory, hackers have apparently infiltrated the computer systems of an Iranian nuclear facility. The chief manner in which the cyberattacks have manifested themselves is by causing the AC/DC song "Thunderstruck" to be blared at random times in the middle of the night.
Personally, I made similar attacks on my neighbors in my youth, but I never got the headlines because it never occurred to me to go after rogue nuclear nations.
At any rate, one has to marvel at the creativity in coming up with this manner of attack. I remember hearing somewhere that Obama had authorized cyberattacks on Iran's nuclear program. Is it possible that the order for this came all the way from the White House? How cool would that be?
