America and Israel Created a Monster Computer Virus Which Now Threatens Nuclear Reactors Worldwide

Washington’s Blog
November 12, 2013

In their obsession to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons, the U.S. and Israel created a computer virus (called “Stuxnet”) to take out Iran’s nuclear reactors.

The virus appears to have spread to other countries.

One of the world’s top computer security experts – Eugene Kaspersky – said this week that the virus has attacked a Russian nuclear reactor. As The Register notes:

The infamous Stuxnet malware thought to have been developed by the US and Israel to disrupt Iran‘s nuclear facilities, also managed to cause chaos at a Russian nuclear plant, according to Eugene Kaspersky.

The revelation came during a Q&A session after a speech at Australia‘s National Press Club last week, in which he argued that those spooks responsible for “offensive technologies” don’t realise the unintended consequences of releasing malware into the wild.

“Everything you do is a boomerang,” he added. “It will get back to you.”

“Unfortunately, it’s very possible that other nations which are not in a conflict will be victims of cyber attacks on critical infrastructure,” said Kaspersky.

“It’s cyber space. [There are] no borders, [and many facilities share the] same systems.”

Not finished there, Kaspersky also claimed to have heard from “Russian space guys” in the know that even machines on the International Space Station had been infected “from time to time” after scientists arrived aboard with infected USBs.

Watch for yourself:

Other security experts agree.

As British security website V3 – in an article entitled “Stuxnet: UK and US nuclear plants at risk as malware spreads outside Russia” – reports:

Experts from FireEye [background] and F-Secure [background] told V3 the nature of Stuxnet means it is likely many power plants have fallen victim to the malware ….

F-Secure security analyst Sean Sullivan told V3 Stuxnet’s unpredictable nature means it has likely spread to other facilities outside of the plant mentioned by Kaspersky.

“It didn’t spread via the internet. It spread outside of its target due to a bug and so it started traveling via USB. Given the community targeted, I would not be surprised if other countries had nuclear plants with infected PCs,” he said.

Director of security strategy at FireEye, Jason Steer, mirrored Sullivan’s sentiment, adding the insecure nature of most critical infrastructure systems would make them an ideal breeding ground for Stuxnet.

Steer added the atypical way Stuxnet spreads and behaves, means traditional defences are ill equipped to stop, or even accurately track the malware’s movements.

“It’s highly likely that other plants globally are infected and will continue to be infected as it’s in the wild and we will see on a weekly basis businesses trying to figure out how to secure the risk of infected USB flash drives,” he said.

***

The use of XP in power plants is set to become even more dangerous as Microsoft has confirmed it will officially cut support for the 12-year-old OS in less than a year. The lack of support means XP systems will no longer receive critical security updates from Microsoft.

That’s almost as brilliant is waging a global war on terror in such an idiotic way that it is increasing terrorism

  1. Well now that the CODE is out there …. and can be MODIFIED and proliferate. I don’t CARE if “They did not understand the possible consequences” …. America and Israel should be held responsible for ALL DAMAGES ………. They have “zero tolerance” for Children ….. hold these scumbags responsible for what they have done.

  2. I. The HAARP/Stuxnet Fukushima disaster, for the Israelis (City of London), will the be the gift, the ultimate distraction, that will keep on giving:

    d. The Stuxnet virus would not have to be deliberately insinuated into the secure server at any nuclear plant, which usually would not be available through the Internet:

    e. Six months before the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, Iran and Japan were making plans to building "earthquake proof" nuclear reactors.

    f. Meanwhile, the MSM is completely oblivious to this monumental planetary disaster:

    g. Fukushima Daiichi and other nuclear disasters/wars have been the subject of several movies in which individuals and organizations have postulated that a nuclear disaster/war is inevitable, perhaps acceptable and even desirable (Fail Safe, Dr Stangelove, The Watchmen).

    II. Some considerations:

    a. It will change the calculus and timeline for “Israel’s demise”, preempting the growing global chorus of Israel critics, many of whom will now be scrambling just to survive:

    b. Many Jews, feeling threatened are leaving Israel, but would the world's Jews return, if that was the only option in an irradiated world?

    c. The HAARP/Stuxnet Fukushima nuclear debacle may very well be the fulfilling of a threat Israel has made against the world:

    However, an overt "Sampson Option" would only lead to Israel's annihilation.

    d. It certainly taught the Japanese a lesson that they will not be able to “go it alone” in regards to the NWO, privately controlled central banking cartel. The pending collapse of Ford and GM will now be postponed due to cratering Japanese industrial output. The Japanese culture, over 35,000 years old, now faces annihilation.

    e. The growing anti-nuke sentiment arising from the Fukushima, Fort Calhoun, Los Alamos disasters will only work in Israel’s favor, as it continues to hide its burgeoning nuclear arsenal, which now boasts missile defense technology stolen from the US.

    f. The coming population crash due to induced environmental and economic factors (Gulf of Mexico oil spill, Fukushima nuclear debacle, food control and hyper-inflation, targeted under-employment) will reverse Israel’s growing demographic marginalization due to the world’s burgeoning population.

    g. A Review of global air mass circulation, vis a vis total available radioactive particles, looks to leave Israeli’s sphere of influence, Asia Minor/central Asia relatively unscathed by the radiation plume now covering the northern hemisphere (US, western Europe):

    Due to these environmental disasters, the "livable" world will shrink. As a result, Israel will emerge as the remaining major world power (thanks to US subsidies), as the rest of us are reduced back to the stone age. Israel has built its own system of D.U.M.B.s in the Negev desert. The reduction of nation states to controllable territories, without rule of law is one of the main tenants of the neoconservative philosophy.

    h. Israel’s host and erstwhile ally, the United States, is disintegrating due to the Fukushima disaster, Gulf of Mexico oil spill, corrupt economic policies (toxic mortgage CDOs, credit default swaps, tax-cuts for the rich) pursued in the wake of the so-called 911 attacks (inside job). Israel has no exposure to the toxic mortgage, as has the United States and Europe. For Israel, who looks upon the dominate US Christian theology as anathema to Judaism, a collapsed US would remove an eventual and persistent existential threat. The Japanese financial implosion will accelerate the US financial debacle.

    j. Meanwhile, Israel and its "new friend" China will emerge as the new powers in the world.

  3. And let’s not forget the worst aspect of this fustercluck. The Stuxnet virus was found on machines near Fukushima in the months before the disaster, and was designed to cause the same kind of failures that led to the biggest disaster in history. This is war against Humanity – crimes on a scale of which we have never imagined before.
