[quote:Anonymous Coward 31243632:MV8yMjc2Mjk5XzM4NzExMTk0X0M5RTE3NDJE] [quote:Anonymous Coward 42393398:MV8yMjc2Mjk5XzM4NzEwMTM5X0Y1MDM4NzdG] Fukushima = Stuxnet job. [/quote] Yes - Stuxnet affected Seimens operating systems. Iran had Seimens, so did Germany, so did Japan. Stuxnet was reported in Japan in December 2010. Tepco, for reasons that have remained unexplained, took down it's backup systems in January 2011. March 2011 - tsunami hits. Reactors survive quake & tsunami and all hell breaks loose after they attempt to turn on back-up systems (Stuxnet affected centrifuges during re-starts; going to back-up is Re-start) Reactors meltdown & both Japan & Germany take all of their reactors off-line (the two countries that use Seimens operating systems are the only two countries that shut down all their reactors in response to Fukushima & kept them off-line) Stuxnet has a built in kill switch; a turn off date. Japan begins restarting it's reactors one week after that date. Pretty obvious, isn't it? [/quote]
Legal sources tell NBC News that the former second-highest-ranking officer in the U.S. military is now the target of a Justice Department investigation into an alleged leak of classified information about a covert U.S. cyberattack on Iran’s nuclear program.
According to legal sources, retired Marine Gen. James “Hoss” Cartwright, the former vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has been notified that he’s under investigation for allegedly leaking information about a massive attack using a computer virus named Stuxnet on Iran’s nuclear facilities. Gen. Cartwright, 63, becomes the latest alleged leaker targeted by the Obama administration, which has already prosecuted or charged eight individuals under the Espionage Act.
