Trailer for Upcoming Twisted Sister Movie Released

A trailer for, “We Are F***ing Twisted Sister!” has been released. The upcoming movie covers the band’s early days when they played in clubs.

Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider said the movie captured the band’s story of sticking things out for a decade before finally gaining popularity. He said the movie is for true fans, hardcore fans or anyone who just wants to know more about the band.

The movie doesn’t have a release date at this time.

American’s Hacked Iranian Nuke Sites, Streamed AC/DC

Israeli and American hackers’ infiltrated the computers that operate Iran’s nuclear facilities, using the virus Stuxnet.

The virus reportedly caused a fifth of Iran’s nuclear centrifuges to self-destruct by telling them to run themselves into the ground. But, that wasn’t all the hackers did, apparently.

A well-known computer security expert was speaking at the Black Hat security conference this week and offered up a fun fact: the hackers also played AC/DC at the workstations of one of the facilities.

He shared an email from an Iranian scientist who worked at one of the facilities that read:

“There was also some music playing randomly on several of the workstations during the middle of the night with the volume maxed out. I believe it was the American band AC-DC, Thunderstruck. It was all very strange and happened very quickly.”
