SAFED, Israel, July 3 (Reuters) – They grow in a secret
location in northern Israel. A tall fence, security cameras and
an armed guard protect them from criminals. A hint of their
sweet-scented blossom carries in the air: rows and rows of
cannabis plants, as far as the eye can see.
It is here, at a medical marijuana plantation atop the hills
of the Galilee, where researchers say they have developed
marijuana that can be used to ease the symptons of some ailments
without getting patients high.

(Reuters) – Two leading computer security firms have linked some of the software code in the powerful Flame virus to the Stuxnet cyber weapon, which was widely believed to have been used by the United States and Israel to attack Iran’s nuclear program.
Eugene Kaspersky, chief executive of Moscow-based Kaspersky Lab, which uncovered Flame last month, said at the Reuters Global Media and Technology Summit on Monday his researchers have since found that part of the Flame program code is nearly identical to code found in a 2009 version of Stuxnet.
