‘Battleships, aircraft carriers, minesweepers and submarines from 25 nations are converging on the strategically important Strait of Hormuz in an unprecedented show of force as Israel and Iran move towards the brink of war.

There has been no confirmation of the attack from Tehran, but the evidence stems from a series of e-mails purporting to be from the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran.

An unnamed Iranian scientist e-mailed Mikko Hypponen, chief research officer for Finnish Internet security firm F-Secure, saying that the facilities at Natanz and Fordo, near Qom, were hit by a worm, the Daily Mail reports.

According to the report, the malware not only disables the automated network at both sites, but also seemed to have an interesting side effect of blaring out AC/DC at any given moment.
