Atomic Energy Organization of Iran hacked again

Looks like someone was able to break into the AEOI again – not only doing untold damage, but also leaving an interesting calling card:

There was also some music playing randomly on several of the workstations during the middle of the night with the volume maxed out. I believe it was playing ‘Thunderstruck’ by AC/DC.

While at first it struck me as funny, it’s also interesting that a detail like that could lead to increased media exposure for this particular hack. I wouldn’t even be posting this story if this was anyone else, but I trust Mikko Hypponen not to be pulling a fast one over on us…
