I wrote just a few weeks ago about how the computer virus called Duqu was worming through foreign computer networks, running recon for the next Stuxnet style attack.  Now Reuters is reporting that a virus has infected the oil control facility on Kharg Island in Iran.  Is this the beginning of round two? -Jack

DUBAI (Reuters) – Iran is investigating a suspected cyber attack on its main oil export terminal and on the Oil Ministry itself, Iranian industry sources said on Monday.

A virus was detected inside the control systems of Kharg Island, the country’s largest crude oil export facility, but the terminal remained operational, a source at the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) said.

The virus, which is likely to be compared to the Stuxnet computer worm which reportedly affected Iranian nuclear facilities in 2009-10, struck late on Sunday.
