Obama ‘sped up cyber-attacks’ on Iran’s

Obama ‘sped up cyber-attacks’ on Iran’s nuclear program: report – London Guardian –
President Barack Obama’s administration has taken direct responsibility for a rapid acceleration in cyber-attacks against Iran‘s nuclear programme.
According to anonymous senior administration sources quoted in the New York Times, Obama decided to speed up a programme first launched by his predecessor, George W Bush, codenamed Olympic Games, whose aim was to use computer viruses to attack Iran’s nuclear enrichment programme.
The decision to reveal Obama’s role in the cyberwar against Iran follows hard on the heels of the highly political disclosure in an election year that the president had taken a personal role in approving terrorist targets for US drone strikes. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/jun/01/obama-sped-up-cyberattack-iran
