    Industrial Worm

    FT.com / Global Economy - Malicious computer worm launched at industrial targets

    At a closed-door conference this week in Maryland, Ralph Langner, a German industrial controls safety expert, said Stuxnet might be targeting not a sector but perhaps only one plant, and he speculated that it could be a controversial nuclear facility in Iran.
    According to Symantec, which has been investigating the virus and plans to publish details of the rogue commands on Wednesday, Iran has had far more infections than any other country.

    The Stuxnet Worm

    This article is an amazing read. This is straight out of a Tom Clancy novel, and yet this is real-world stuff. It is amazing that a bunch of computer nerds in the U.S. and Israel could do so much damage in an Iranian nuclear facility without even setting foot in that country.
