The Iranian computers controlling important infrastructure in the Islamic Republic that were discovered to be infected by the Stuxnet worm have been cleaned of the malware, Iranian Press TV reported on Sunday.

"This virus activates in industrial computers with SCADA platforms designed by a particular company, and all [infected] platforms have been scanned, cleaned, and sent back to respective industries," deputy industry minister for technology Mohsen Hatam was quoted as saying by Press TV.

Teheran also sought to quash rumors that the malware had been designed to sabotage Iran's first nuclear reactor at Bushehr before it comes online, denying that any of the reactors computers had been infected with the Stuxnet code.
