SacriliciousBeerSwiller: BS-TECH THERMAL CLEANSING technology, that BURNS any harmful organic compounds that enter your engine cylinders!!!
fluffy2097: So what if it was found on their computers.It only does anything to centrifuges producing enriched uranium in Iran.People have broken down the code and it really is that goddamn specific. It would just lie dormant in an oil refinery because the wrong SCADA devices are in use.
"Chevron is the first U.S. company to acknowledge that its systems were infected by Stuxnet, although most security experts believe the vast majority of hacking incidents go unreported for reasons of security or to avoid embarrassment. The devices used in industrial equipment and targeted by Stuxnet are made by huge companies, including Siemens (whose devices were in use at Iran's facility). Millions of these devices have been sold around the world, so potentially every industrial company that uses these devices, called programmable logic controllers, or PLCs, are at risk of being infected."
sethen320: I cant stand Siemens PLCs. Could not have happened to a more deserving manufacturer.
viscountalpha: The Siemens hardware was procured illegally by the Iranians, but the consortium of concerned governments were already one step ahead.It was sold with the knowledge that they would be infected at a later day if Iran continued their nuclear program for weapons.You won't hear this from anywhere else, lets just say I know more then I should about such things.
DeathByGeekSquad: I like how they boldly state that it was created by the US and Israel, link to another article on the topic, which boldly states unnamed sources say it's created by US and Israel, and that US officials have never acknowledged their role in its creation.This is what's wrong with the media. It doesn't matter that it's a 99.99999% chance that we created the damn thing, the official stance is still 'no' so don't go factually stating we created it until you have proof.
LesserEvil: Isn't Chevron owned by Hugo Chavez, I mean, Venezuela?
