    The Stuxnet Worm as it's called seems to have disabled Iran's nuclear enrichment plans so AP reports (Yahoo).

    The worm was probably inserted into the Iranian computer system via a flash drive and it attacks computer control processes. The technical aspects go over my head but it's good news.

    So, instead of iron bombs a bug bites them in the posterior.

    Gotta love it.

    Some things are just so cool they are worthy of repeating

    And I am sure the Iranians know if Stuxnet can happen, worse can happen in the future.

    It really is a very scary little piece of software. Pretty much digital ebola. I just hope it doesn't go any further
