Stuxnet is some serious worm, hope no average hacker gets the source code or whatever and then BAM we have another security problem. Stuxnet almost sounds like something off of a science fiction book.

If Symnatec's claims are true, then this worm would have been coded by professionals working for some kind of secret agency and probably was tested on a test machine before releasing it.
Does it sound like a James Bond movie?

Rumor(s) <_< have it that it was developed by the U.S. and Allied Countries to counter the nuclear capabilities\threats currently being developed by Rogue Nations.

We will most likely never know. :huh:

You are very correct Master Qiang. However. Once released into the wild there is nothing to prevent anyone from getting a hold of it. B)
