Submission + - Stuxnet Still Out of Control at Iran Nuclear Sites (

Velcroman1 writes: Iran's nuclear program is still in chaos despite its leaders' adamant claim that they have contained the computer worm that attacked their facilities, cybersecurity experts in the U.S. and Europe say. Last week President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, after months of denials, admitted that the worm had penetrated Iran's nuclear sites, but he said it was detected and controlled. The second part of that claim, experts say, doesn't ring true. Owners of several security sites have discovered huge bumps in traffic from Iran, as the country tries to deal with Stuxnet. "Our traffic from Iran has really spiked," said a corporate officer who asked that neither he nor his company be named. "Iran now represents 14.9 percent of total traffic, surpassing the United States with a total of 12.1 percent."
