+ - Stuxnet a PR virus?->

Submitted by

bstender writes "Stuxnet has grabbed serious headlines, attaining almost mythical status for its ingenuity and success. But with stories coming out contradicting its success and sophistication, what if the code only needed to be good enough to grab headlines in the ongoing cold war against Iran?


"The Stuxnet Story Is Full of Holes"

The Stuxnet narrative claims that (1) the virus was a brilliant piece of programming; (2) it set back Iran's nuclear program significantly by damaging its centrifuges or the Bushehr reactor; and (3) it was the work of Israel and/or the United States. However, all three points are very much open to a lot of dispute."
