More on Stuxnet worm

Stuxnet so sophisticated it was like 'the arrival of an F-35 fighter jet on a World War I battlefield.'


Compare the worm to "digital warheads" that detonated on not only Iranian centrifuges - even those we possibly don't know anything about - but also at the new reactor at Bushehr:

Langner said that the portion of the worm that targeted Uranium enrichment plants manipulated the speeds of mechanical parts in the enrichment process, which would ultimately "result in cracking the rotor, thereby destroying the centrifuge."

He said the strategic importance of such an attack is that it was able to "attack and destroy centrifuge facilities that are unknown to IAEA inspectors and the world," saying that this was likely the main goal of the worm's first "warhead."
