Iran has developed an anti-Stuxnet virus programme and will make it available to the public for free in a month, the Tabnak website reports.

Until now, only anti-virus programmes developed by other countries were available in Iran.

In 2010, Iran's industrial and nuclear computer systems were attacked by the Stuxnet worm. The worm was a malware designed to infect computers using Siemens Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) - a control system favoured by industries that manage water supplies, oil rigs and power plants.
