Thanks for the link. Like the killing of Masoud Ali Mohammadi, the Mossad's fingerprints are all over it.

I was fascinated by several aspects of this story. 1)The chipset vulnerability which indicates that these were discretely and selectively replaced. 2) The detection by Symantec but once found no one really understood what it did. 3) Windows was the platform to refresh and diseminate the worm - you think people would learn. 4) The resources and collaboration that it took.

Symantec has released a report on Stuxnet. Initial information at the NYTimes:

The Symantec news release is here along with a link to the actual paper:
