Iran could be decoding one of America's drones right now, but they've got some other trouble on the other end. Someone just cyber punched their oil infrastructure. The BBC reports that 90% of the country's oil export network is now out of commission:
The computer virus is believed to have hit the internal computer systems at Iran's oil ministry and its national oil company.
Equipment on the Kharg island and at other Iranian oil plants has been disconnected from the net as a precaution.
The ability to ship out the crude oil has more or less been crippled. This is bad, considering oil cash comprises the majority of Iran's budget, which means, they'll want to fix this at a very fast pace and they should.
Who's the culprit of this? Stuxnet? No one is taking claim to it just yet. [BBC]
