It seems most people have glanced over the importance of this and when I bring it up it's not even given the attention it deserves. We are in a new age of warfare and the first official strike went by without lifting up an eyebrow. So what's so special about this virus? Everything.
It's complex, specific, and designed to not take down systems but to let others in. It just doesn't let people in though but it goes over and covers their tracks so the person is like they are not even there but they are. The worse part is that they can do whatever they like to your system as you watch and there is nothing you can do. It would be like talking to a person that you can see, hear, and even feel their breath but when you go to touch them your hands just go through them like mist. Short of turning off your system and never turning it on again there isn't much a person can do. The best of the best who have investigated it are all saying the same thing. It's unlike anything anybodies ever seen before.
So who created it? Figuring the complex sophistication of the virus there is only two countries with the technological sophistication to create a virus of this type. This would be Russia and the U.S. India has the man power but not the technological advances to create a virus like this so that takes them off the map. China is also behind the technological curve compared to both the US and Russia. Russia has both the man power, funds, and technological know how but has no real interest in shutting down Iran's Technological Infrastructure but the US... You add this up with the fact that only Iran and a few other minor countries are being attacked and it doesn't take a GED to come up with who the culprit is. Not that there is any evidence but you know.
Iran is trying to down play the situation but from what is being gathered this has put Iran years behind in their Nuclear ambitions and may of made the costs skyrocket to the point that it's no longer feasible to bother even trying. With nearly every single piece of technological equipment in Iran now being infected it's not like Iran can just put in a new system. That would be like putting a disease free child in a room full of flu victims. So what is Iran planning to do? Right now there is no solution. Anything tied to a phone line, a CD, a memory card, etc. could contaminate a clean system.
Welcome to the new age of Warfare. It's a brand new day.
