Stuxnet: It’s the real thing


From ‘The Tenth Planet’

The Stuxnet worm is the real thing, and it’s apparently got the Iranians tied up in knots.

Stuxnet was designed to take over the control systems and evade detection, and it apparently was very successful. Last week President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, after months of denials, admitted that the worm had penetrated Iran’s nuclear sites, but he said it was detected and controlled.
The second part of that claim, experts say, doesn’t ring true.

the long and short on the worm is that Iran should throw out their computers and start over, but they can’t because their work is based on companies outside of their country. They are stuck. click the link if you are one of those tech people
