Any one heard of this new one, it is reported to have cost a figure in the 7 zero bracket to make and contains at least 5 dooms day scenarios of virus only a nation or combination of nations could have made this as it is reckoned to taken at least 8 months and a big team to make, rumours say it has managed to shut down or severely damaged the Iranian capability of enriching uranium by stopping their centrifuges and the Iranian head of the atomic project has resigned after 12 years in his post. it was alleged to been the next best thing to a bombing raid on the two Iranian sites. Stuxnet remember that name.

It was probably developed by a 14 year old script kiddie, from Grimsby, named Norman.
