Head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Ali-Akbar Salehi said Wednesday that the enemy's efforts to infect Iranian nuclear systems with a computer virus have failed, the local satellite Press TV reported.

"We began taking computer security and safety measures since last year and over the past two months these safety measures have been intensified. Fortunately, we succeeded in preventing the enemy from achieving its objectives," Salehi was quoted as saying.

All efforts to infect Iranian computers had failed as the country's experts were capable in countering all threats, he said.

The Iranian nuclear chief reiterated that the country has the ability to counter "software war," he added.
