(Classic Rock) A computer virus that infected nuclear establishments in Iran forced machines to play AC/DC hit track Thunderstruck at full volume, claims an expert.

Mikki Hypponen of Finnish security firm F-Secure says he received a number of alert messages from the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran, Gawker reports.

"Our nuclear program has once again been compromised and attacked by a worm which has shut down our network at Natanz and Fordo. The automation network and hardware were shut down," One email said. "There was also some music playing randomly during the middle of the night with the volume maxed out. I believe it was Thunderstruck by AC/DC."
