Stuxnet 2 coming soon, Claims by Iranian News Agency

An Iranian news agency has said that “malware worse than Stuxnet” may soon be unleashed, to “spy on and destroy the software structure of Iran’s nuclear program”. The information came from an unnamed source close to Saudi Arabia’s secret service.

According to Iranian news agency FARS "Saudi spy chief Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and director of Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency Tamir Bardo sent their representatives to a meeting in Vienna on November 24 to increase the two sides’ cooperation in intelligence and sabotage operations against Iran’s nuclear program".

“One of the proposals raised in the meeting was the production of a malware worse than the Stuxnet (a comprehensive US-Israeli program designed to disrupt Iran's nuclear technology) to spy on and destroy the software structure of Iran’s nuclear program”

This November 24 deal, branded a “historic mistake” by Israel, will see Iran agree to halt some of its nuclear activities in return for around £4bn in sanctions relief.

The source said that the recent agreement between Iran and the Group 5+1 (the US, Russia, China, France and Britain plus Germany) has infuriated the Saudi officials, specially Prince Bandar, so much that he has called the deal "West's treachery".

His remarks was angrily responded by the US officials, specially in the recent visit by US Secretary of State John Kerry to Riyadh.

Earlier reports also said that Washington does not want Prince Bandar to lead the espionage operations against Syria any more and has called for his removal.

Israel’s Haaretz news said that Saudi Arabia’s “shared concern” with Israel over Iran’s nuclear capability has put the two countries at odds with the United States. FARS reported that the Saudi intelligence chief described current Geneva talks aimed at limiting the country’s nuclear program through economic sanctions as “the West’s treachery.

Unless, that is, the idea is to have the malware all ready to go in case there’s a sudden breakdown in talks.
