Information provided by F-Secure Security Labs today reveal that an Iranian scientist working for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) reported that a cyber worm affected two facilities (one in Natanz and another near Qom) with “some music playing randomly” at high volumes on workstations during the night: “I believe it was playing ‘Thunderstruck’ by AC/DC,” reports the scientist. The full text of the alleged email is available here.

Be very skeptical at this point. Metasploit doesn't have that many modules for industrial systems, and the scientist didn't say which part of the VPN was compromised. Was it the endpoint, the VPN gateway? How did he know it was the VPN?

It seems the industrial system itself wasn't compromised, just the desktops there. If anything, this is a regular PC virus.
