This mystery worm is a 100% coded weapon programmed to target the disruption of a nuclear plant.
Stuxnet was first discovered in 2010, when it infected at least 14 industrial sites in Iran, including a uranium-enrichment plant. This mysterious worm was blatantly designed to be a coded weapon programmed to target the disruption of a nuclear plant. There have been many speculations that it was designed jointly by the US military, Israel, and Siemens. However, there is no evidence to support the aforementioned rumors.
In this infographic, you will learn about:
- What Stuxnet is
- What Stuxnet can do
- How the Stuxnet worm attacked an Iranian nuclear plant
- The timeline of the Stuxnet Iranian nuclear plant attack
- Highlights of major global cyber attacks
- Sophisticated cyber worms similar to Stuxnet
The most important question is not who designed it, but who can re-design it and for what purpose, as technology and attack sophistication continue to advance.
