information and more but we're not talking about people what about computer programs like the one which attacked the iranian nuclear program in two thousand and ten and now antivirus developers from russia and the united states have been investigating servers which connect to computers infected by this spyware program very similar to the one which attacked iran back in two thousand and ten and they reveal traces of totally new and still clearly unknown programs which are the same time very specially the one called mean speedy and they say what's very interesting about it is that unlike traditional spyware which in fact thousands or even tens of thousands of computers a vis particular program has in fact it only a few dozen all in the middle east in countries like iran saudi arabia and palestine and they say that it's very a way that these computers have the most interesting information on them and this
2:17 pm
software is none other than cyber weapons. these viruses are used not to kill for money as cyber criminals usually do but rather to bill for information pursue some national interests and what makes it very difficult for the specialists to identify these programs is first of all they're very sophisticated and second of all the control servers castle we move around and the geography is really impressive i must say since it's europe the middle east and asia we do see they have an idea of which western state on the other side of the atlantic could be behind it but they say until they are one hundred percent sure they won't disclose the name of the country . a huge naval war games are under way in the strategically important strait of hormuz off the coast of iran well ships from britain the u.s. almost thirty other allies are taking part in the exercise comes in the way could promise to close the major oil ship. could you tell me money israel's prime minister is rattling his saber on american t.v.

2:19 pm
sir has let them get away but that i mean just imagine if any other country were threatening another sovereign state there would be some here wouldn't cry in international waters not in the case of israel so the very notion that israel has the right to invade another country because it has nuclear weapons when israeli israel itself is the nuclear part is slightly grotesque. the two hundred occupy wall street protesters were arrested in new york as they mark the movement's one year anniversary peaceful anti corporate activists flooded the streets trying to block the entrance to the stock exchange but police resorted to using force as artie's marina partner witnessed. the day began with hundreds of optimus and their supporters storming lower manhattan some attempting to block the entrance of the new york stock exchange the day progressed we saw many washes between new york city police departments and activists that were walking through lower manhattan chanting
2:20 pm
we are the ninety nine percent pioneering a message that began months ago a message that started in new york city and then nationwide and ultimately global but the most important thing to note on monday when these optimists gather together for the one year anniversary is that they are still very much committed to their fight against income inequality against corporate influence on us politics but what also for me was the heavy handed tactics used by the n.y.p.d. against optimus some participating in civil disobedience on many occasions we saw them i.p.t. pushing optimus to the ground while some criticize this movement is not going beyond civil disobedience or chanting or yelling still very clear that the frustrations that ignited this movement are still very much alive where it will go
2:21 pm
from here only time will tell but it will be interesting to see how and if this event this movement has any impact on the u.s. presidential election that is just seven weeks away. now reporting there from new york the former u.s. governor jesse ventura believes getting arrested in the protests is a viable turn to make america pay attention to the occupy movement in an interview coming up later this hour he lays out his plans for a possible presidential run in twenty six doing. we need to continue to stay apart to continue to get arrested they need to continue to be vigilant how do you think we stop the vietnam war there. to me the turning point of the vietnam war many people say it was the sixty eight ted offensive that was huge but i don't believe that was the real turning point for america i believe the turning point of the vietnam war was when the four were killed at camp street i hate to say it but it's
2:22 pm
going to require something of that magnitude for the wall street movement to truly be impact to the psyche of america. that interview coming your way. by activists won't change whether barack obama's didn't live up to his promises and romney isn't paying enough attention to his electorate that's the view of jeffrey summers from the university of wisconsin milwaukee obama just by inclination and personality does not seem to be that interested in taking on in powerful entrenched interests he seems to see himself as potentially being the great conciliator the person who can bring together different interests and i think we're at a time in our history where the country is very divided so i think he's misread his world in history and consequently he has not introduced that much change in terms of actually won the election i think the republican strategy has been to kind of juice up again this frustration anger that resides with the american people and i
2:23 pm
don't think romney is saying much success i don't think that's resonating enough to actually win the election in fact in the american press today they just released a video clip in which he said that forty seven percent of the electorate he's not even interested he calls them the moochers and these are people who were attending a fifty thousand dollars a plate fund raiser so you know i think ultimately his prospects for one of the elections are rather small i think obama's. chief strategy in terms of winning is just presenting himself as not romney at this point so he can actually not perform all that well and yet still win the election. big demand to buy europe's third biggest lender bank daniels in a business that's what's the story on that and. the company has been twice oversubscribed. time to move right. the risk of the ties for the financial sector is getting really strong and russia specific. is improving
2:24 pm
so basically we think it's a great time and i think very bank is going to be the first one of the russian companies that plan to appear to i.p.o.'s in the near future and i think burbank is going to sara bag good standard they could have placed itself three three to eight percent higher i think it's fair isn't i one smart to give investors some room to for appreciation. for a second day here in moscow that so today's closing races you can see all tiers of really bad. federal express this morning said profits fell the ship of blames people trading less in the crisis on the currencies the euro's shedding to the greenback as thirty protests in europe continue. to percent of north korea's eleven billion dollars that most of which dates back to the soviet union in return gets to invest in north korean energy and health care well she also wants to build
