The Guardian reports on an announcement from the Iranian intelligence minister who has said that Iran has detained several ‘spies’ following the attack on industrial systems by the Stuxnet worm. Suspicions have grown in the country of late that the worm may have been designed as much to spy on the systems as to destroy them.

BT continues to be in the news this week as the BBC reports how the telecoms company is seeking a suspension on legal applications to obtain details of its customers who are alleged to have illegally shared files online.  The request for legal action comes after a high profile data breach at London law firm ACS: Law saw thousands of customer details from Internet Service Providers (ISPs) including BT owned PlusNet published online.  Law firm Gallant Macmillan are involved in the case and are seeking a court order to obtain the names and addresses of a large number of broadband users from PlusNet, BskyB and Be Internet who are suspected of illegally downloading and sharing music from high profile record label, Ministry of Sound. The action by PlusNet to send the personal details in an unencrypted document to ACS:Law, could put BT in breach of the DataProtectionAct.
