Unraveling The Stuxnet Virus

From Patrick Clair a year ago, a quick and excellent look at the troubling Stuxnet virus. It has since been confirmed that the United States and Israel were behind its use against Iran’s nuclear facilities. The question is now, what have we unleashed?

An infographic dissecting the nature and ramifications of Stuxnet, the first weapon made entirely out of code. This was produced for Australian TV program HungryBeat.

  1. Okay, from what I have read I think we can safely rule out Siemens. Siemens was a company who worked very closely with the NAZIs in WWII and it would be more like they would be hired by the Arabs than to ever work against an enemy of Israel. Such behavior has taken place between former NAZIs and Saudi Arabia before, though never publicized at all. So to me that narrows it down to the Israelis, US Intelligence, or even British Intelligence.

    Though it is not common knowledge US Intelligence – which had a revolving door with Big Oil where the Mid East is concerned – did everything it could to push the Brits out of the Mid East in the years following WWII. Of course the mastermind of this plan was the Dulles group (The two Dulles Brothers, James Jesus Angleton, and James Forestal.). It must be remembered that up until WWII the Mid East was the domain of the English, so much so that it was actually Churchill that drew up the national borders of Iran. After the war England was weak, broke but very powerful through their MI6, but the Americans saw full well the importance of Oil in the coming age, and American Oil/intelligence saw the money that could be made if the Brits could be ousted from the area. Of course the history books will disagree with me on most of this but a little digging will show the truth of these statements.

    So, once again, an attempt to improve situations in the Mid East has backfired and made things worse worldwide. I think perhaps it is time to come up with a new name for the intelligence community, at least until they start acting intelligently.

  2. Good grief, the sky is falling…again.

    I think Tom Clancy was off when he wrote Rainbow Six about radical environmentalists who engineered a biological virus to wipe out humanity.

    This is a MUCH more effective eco-weapon as it only targets the structures directly responsible for the environmental damage and secondarily the humans who depend on those structures.
