Iran's Nuclear Computer Plays AC/DC's Thunderstruck Following Malware Attack

AC/DC (2008) A malware infected Iranian nuclear computer has begun playing AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" at midnight and at full volume.

A worker at the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran emailed a security researcher "I am writing you to inform you that our nuclear program has once again been compromised and attacked by a new worm with exploits which have shut down our automation network at Natanz and another facility Fordo near Qom," reads the email.

"There was also some music playing randomly on several of the workstations during the middle of the night with the volume maxed out," the e-mail reads. "I believe it was playing 'Thunderstruck' by AC/DC."

Pretty cool that the Iranian nuclear researcher could identify the song.
