    If the virus was programmed for OS X, yes. Otherwise, no. I don't see Iranian military using OS X.

    Short answer is yes. This types of viruses are going to be written to target what ever computer system has the data they want. If it is OSX then they will write it and target it. If Linux same answer.

    This are government funded so the rules are a little different than standard design. They are specially designed and heck could easily be written to only work on a single computer system.
