For Siemens with love

The highly complex stuxnet worm–it’s complexity, some say, suggesting it could only have been created by a “nation state“–has targeted systems at Iran’s first nuclear power station, systems made by the German company Siemens.

Stuxnet is tailored to target weaknesses in Siemens systems used to manage water supplies, oil rigs, power plants and other utilities. But I can’t see why anyone would be interested in doing such a thing as Iran (with Siemen’s help) has repeatedly stated that it is only developing nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. 

Hmm. I guess you could say da ist der Wurm drin (the worm is inside) = there’s something very wrong with that. With making ridiculous statements like that, I mean.

Nun bestätigte ein Regierungsmitarbeiter, dass in Industrieanlagen 30.000 Rechner mit dem Virus infiziert wurden.

One response

  1. One vile thing about Siemens is their predatory construction of monopolies in various sectors of industry. i.e. fire detection systems, or power generation control systems like SCADA, which is this virus targets.

    They used their protected position in the German market to become a large enough ‘national champion’ to prey on competitors who were both obstructed from their market, and have to compete with their steroid boosted protectionism created state outside of Europe.
