    There is an interesting article here
    http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2011/07/how-digital-detectives-deciphered-stuxnet/all/1

    For once a computer article about infrastructure being targeted by a virus that isn't a Red Top scare story.

    It is a fascinating look at how a virus was created to damage the centrifuges in Irans nuclear facility and how it was detected and forensically analysed.

    It reads a bit like a Tom Clancey/James Bond novel but is actually true.

    Amazing. Worth reading to the end though.:Eeek:
