Facing mounting concern about Iran’s nuclear program, a top US and Israeli technical team has developed an improved computer “malworm” designed to take down all of Iran’s computer software.
According to former and serving US intelligence officials, leaders of the three major software companies, Sergey Brin at Google, Steve Ballmer at Microsoft and Larry Ellison at Oracle have been working with Israel’s top cyber warriors and have now come up with a new version of a Stuxnet-like worm that can bring down Iran’s entire software networks if the Iranian regime gets too close to breakout, according to US intelligence sources.
The three companies had no comment on this story.
“Cyber warfare is a lot like biological warfare. It’s hard to stop. It’s uncontrollable. It can bite you in the ass,” said one US official.
