Iran's nuclear power plant
Russian nuclear scientists are helping Iran in its attempts to activate the nation's first nuclear power plant at the Gulf port. However, according to Western intelligence reports, they have raised serious concerns about the extensive damage caused to the plant's computer systems by the mysterious Stuxnet virus, which was discovered last year and is speculated to have been the result of a sophisticated joint US-Israeli cyber attack, reports RIA Novosti.
Reports say that Russian scientists warned the Kremlin that they could be facing "another Chernobyl" if they were forced to comply with Iran's tight deadline to activate the complex this summer. While the story sounds like an urban legend, and it is hard to believe that a computer virus might have caused such an extensive damage (which also assumes that the files were not backed up, and that Iranian government cannot buy new computers),The Telegraph has the story.
