Could AC/DC inadvertently start a nuclear holocaust?

This is a bit strange and funny, but definitely scary at the same time.  It looks like an Iranian nuclear computer was recently infected by some kind of worm that really likes AC/DC.  Specifically the song “Thunderstruck.”

A recent email from someone at the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran to a security researcher read:

“I am writing you to inform you that our nuclear program has once again been compromised and attacked by a new worm with exploits which have shut down our automation network at Natanz and another facility Fordo near Qom.”

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

Wow, who would have thought that an AC/DC song would be the death of us all.
