In which the second-greatest story ever told gets an epilogue. It’s like the Bible, book two!

The American and European experts say their security websites, which deal with the computer worm known as Stuxnet, continue to be swamped with traffic from Tehran and other places in the Islamic Republic, an indication that the worm continues to infect the computers at Iran’s two nuclear sites…

Eric Byres, a computer expert who has studied the worm, said his site was hit with a surge in traffic from Iran, meaning that efforts to get the two nuclear plants to function normally have failed. The web traffic, he says, shows Iran still hasn’t come to grips with the complexity of the malware that appears to be still infecting the systems at both Bashehr and Natanz.

“The effort has been stunning,” Byres said. “Two years ago American users on my site outnumbered Iranians by 100 to 1. Today we are close to a majority of Iranian users.”…

Ralph Langner, the German expert who was among the first to study and raise alarms about Stuxnet, said he was not surprised by the development…

“Here is their problem. They should throw out every personal computer involved with the nuclear program and start over, but they can’t do that. Moreover, they are completely dependent on outside companies for the construction and maintenance of their nuclear facilities. They should throw out their computers as well. But they can’t,“ he explained. “They will just continually re-infect themselves.”

Old theory: Stuxnet is a fiendishly clever mega-virus designed by an elite team of U.S./Israel hackers to basically explode Iran’s nuclear facilities from the inside. New theory: Stuxnet is an alien computer code passed to U.S. intelligence by cyborg time travelers who journeyed here through the Matrix to save our world from Iranian nuclear aggression before it’s. too. late. Media theory: Stuxnet is something Obama and Hillary came up with in their spare time while messing around on the computer, because they’re just that smart and capable. Nothing can be ruled in or out, my friends.

As was the case the last time Fox’s beat reporter wrote about Stuxnet, this is most definitely “read the whole thing” material. Don’t quit before the end either, or else you’ll miss the Stuxnet angle to the recent assassination of one of Iran’s nuclear scientists. Exit question: Would regime change really change Iran’s nuclear posture? I’m thinking … no.
