Eco-Terrorism Has a New Weapon
Iran has put out a call to Hackers everywhere to join in combat with the “Iranian Revolutionary Guard” and has amassed the second-largest online army to counter the ‘Stuxnet’ attack that has crippled their nuclear program. This malware is now freely available online, and has laid the foundation for creating industrial-grade cyber weapons that can infiltrate the systems of energy producers, utilities, and even traffic control systems and factories the world over. This malicious software is highly sophisticated and can even generate false instrument readings to mask destructive processes that would go undetected by hapless operators until it’s too late. This is just the tip of an ice-berg….
There’s rampant speculation that this malware was developed and unleashed by U.S and Isreali operatives as a weapon against Iranian nuclear infrastructure and enrichment capabilities. However the real twist in this story is how this technology has now become widely available to anyone with an agenda for infiltrating and manipulating industrial systems.
It’s become obvious to everyone in the general public that the future of cyber-warfare has now arrived, and we’re sure to see the environment taken as it’s first hostage.
