Iranian infrastructure and strategic networks have come under attack in the last few days by a computer virus similar to Stuxnet but “more violent, more advanced and more sophisticated,” and Israeli officials are refusing to discuss what role, if any, they may have had in the operation, an Israeli TV report said Wednesday.
The report came hours after Israel said its Mossad intelligence agency had thwarted an Iranian murder plot in Denmark, and two days after Iran acknowledged that President Hassan Rouhani’s mobile phone had been bugged.
Stuxnet stuck it to ’em. If we have to think up a name for this new attack, then why not Stixnet? Stuxnet and Stixnet has quite a nice ring to it. And may the twins soon become triplets. Trixnet would be my choice.
