Stuxnet Suspicions Rise: Has a Cyberwar Started?

The Stuxnet worm, which made headlines last summer when it hit one version of a system that controls critical infrastructure systems governing power grids and industrial plants, is once again creating a buzz. This time, there’s speculation that it was created by Israel to target Iran. However, security experts remain divided on the origins of this troublesome bit of malware. Ralph Langner, an expert on industrial systems security, published an analysis of the worm and suggested it may have been used to sabotage Iran’s Bushehr nuclear reactor.
