Submission + - Worm in wild is targetting industrial controllers (

Kevin Stevens writes: "In a story from the NY Times that sounds like something out of a Dan Brown novel, there appears to be a worm in the wild developed by an intelligence agency that targets specific industrial controllers used in Iran's nuclear weapons program. If that isn't sensational enough, looking at the strings inside the worm's code reveal that the project's internal name is a reference to a biblical story about the Jewish people pre-emptively attacking the Persians who were plotting against them."
