The group’s first targets were the US Department of Energy (DOE) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Their aim is to leverage the release of information to pressure the IAEA to investigate Israel’s nuclear operations. Following their initial demands, they released the personal information of many IAEA personnel including email addresses and confidential documents. They further released various satellite images, SafeGuard documents, and a several confidential files that were posted on Cryptome and Pastebin. The IAEA of course is the same agency that is the nuclear watchdog monitoring Iran’s nuclear ambitions. As recently as January, DOE servers were the target of attacks by the same group as a number of files were released and attributed to their exploits.
Editor’s Note: A word of caution – at least one of the released files was found to be ‘payloaded’ – meaning tread lightly and if you open anything, make sure its on a system that you do not particularly care much about (this should be something you do regularly anyways, subject for another day/time). -jc/mrh

Thanks for that info. Because when I was clicking links my mouse started stalling out. Then when I moved my mouse the pointer was highly delayed, then my mouse pointer starting moving by itself. I quickly shut down my PC, and then realized I had plugged something else in the USB port next to my wireless adapter. So I wrote it off as me hitting it and causing a connection failure. But now that you say this i am wondering if my PC has malware or worse in it?

Why would they jam the signal when they can just intercept it and control it themselves?
Seems I've heard of it happening before.
