I wish news reports and articles would stop calling Stuxnet the first known cyber weapon. I can understand why they don't count DDoS or website defacements, because those don't cause permanent or physical destruction. Yet, other worms have caused computers to become permanently inoperable, or required computers to be replaced, because their integrity could be no longer be trusted. I suppose those could be excluded, because they didn't cause a bang or create smoke. But, what about the Siberian pipeline explosion in 1982? That infection was not transmitted over the Internet, yet apparently neither was Stuxnet. There must be other examples as well.
