Reuters--"Stuxnet Weapon Has At Least 4 Cousins: Researchers"
By Jim Finkle, Reuters
Stuxnet virus that last year damaged Iran's nuclear program was likely
one of at least five cyber weapons developed on a single platform whose
roots trace back to 2007, according to new research from Russian
computer security firm Kaspersky Lab.
Security experts widely believe
that the United States and Israel were behind Stuxnet, though the two
nations have officially declined to comment on the matter.
A Pentagon spokesman on Wednesday declined comment on Kaspersky's research, which did not address who was behind Stuxnet.
